    Hi all,

    My sweet 2.5 year old basenji has recently begun drinking an excessive amount of water which has led to an excessive amount of urination. After a few days I decided to take her in for testing. The vet did a urinalysis and blood panel. Her specific gravity was low (which makes sense since it is likely diluted) and her platelets were low on her blood panel. He told me to just continue to give her water (even though she is drinking almost 5 cups a day) and see if anything changes. Yesterday she had blood in her stools, so they'd like to put her on an antibiotic for intestinal issues. Can anyone help us here? I realize that excessive thirst is an early sign of fanconi, but there is no glucose in her urine, but want to help this sweet thing.
