Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Basenji with a Sensitive Stomach

The health of your Basenji is directly related to the diet that they are given, especially so when they have a sensitive stomach. A Basenji's sensitive stomach could be caused by a lot of different factors. Serving a high-quality dog food to your Basenji is an important step in helping them when experiencing a sensitive stomach. Basenji might not have regularly had access to the most effective dog food.

The Basenji is a hunting dog from north Africa identified by the Europeans in the late 19th century. This stealthy breed was prized for its ability to maneuver small game into nets and guard them until hunters arrived. While the Basenji is not one of the more intelligent breeds with regards to training, it has strong hunting and protecting instincts. The Basenji has an odd shaped larnyx and while it is unable to produce a traditional bark, it emits more of a song or yodeling sound. Bred in the hot and arid climate of the Congo, the Basenji has an almost cat-like refusal to venture out in the rain. No doubt the earliest Basenji survived on a diet of hunting spoils and barn vermin. This would have been nutritionally inadequate for those Basenji suffering from sensitive stomach issues.

While the Basenji can be great family pets, they often attach themselves to one owner and do not mix well with non-canine pets in the same household. The Basenji has a keen drive for prey and is very curious. They can be seen standing on their hind legs in full alert much like a Meerkat. The Basenji gained infamy with the starring role of a secret agent in the movie "Pound Puppies". After several failed attempts, the Basenji was finally accepted into the AKC in 1990.
