Don't the blood gases just give an idea of where you are in terms of development of Fanconi - I mean, they can let you know earlier than strip testing if your dog is affected?
They don't let you know if your dog will ever develop Fanconi, right?
So, you'd have to have periodic gases done to check for possible progression, right? How much would something like that run?
I know people that using the DNA test and having it come back as affected, did blood gases. There were changes that would indicate the onset of Fanconi, but they during strip testing had not started spilling, or were doing it only sometimes that the stipping missed it.
So IMO, yes, I think it can tell you earlier that they are affected. What I don't know is if Dr. Gonto recommends any supplements at that point….
