All very insightful comments and I appreciate each and everyone of you getting back to me. After I took him out for the 3rd time that night he settled down and slept the entire night. He’s been behaving normal since then with no other incidents. That being said, we are going to the vet tomorrow to have him checked out just to be 100% sure.
Thank you everyone!
This only ever happens in the evening. I feed him once a day around 8PM but this always occurs before his dinner time. He’s not much of an eater hence why I only feed him once a day. Otherwise, he gets a denta stick in the morning, a kong with peanut butter midday, and a few beef tender sticks (100% Canadian beef) a couple hours before his dinner. As we speak I am outside with him again for a 3rd time over the past 2.5 hours. First two times we’ve been out for 30 mins. He hasn’t vomited yet but hopefully all this grass will induce the vomiting. I’ll see if he and I get any rest tonight and contact my vet in the morning. Thank you for taking the time to reply to me!
I have been a Basenji owner for the past 4.5 years. As of 2-3 months ago I noticed from time to time that my Basenji will be “half hiccuping”, if you may, while whining and being restless. When I take him outside he stops whining but begins to gorge on grass. Sometimes he will vomit and other times he will not. Does anyone know what could be bothering the little guy? He will not settle down when this happens and regardless of how long we are outside, once we get home he’ll want to go back out again in a few minutes time.
