Fanconi testing results

My dog's blood tests came back probably clear and probably carrier. Do I need to continue to do the Diastix testing?

So you have one of each? And no, you do not have to continue with the Diastix testing, only if they came back as Affected….

Good for you and your "kids"...... yea!!!!!!!!!!!!! no worries about Fanconi

Congrats for the results!!! 🙂

My boy came back with the probably clear reading and my girl came back with the probably carrier reading. Well that's good news that I don't have to be the pee catcher anymore…... 🙂

Again that is great that you don't have to worry about Fanconi and that super

… but only goes to show that it is so important to test.... I (sorry) don't remember where you got your Basenjis... but I am guessing the sire and dam's were not tested... so the Sire and Dam of your girl, one will be a carrier at best and one clear, or both can be carrier, or one could be affected and one carrier. Hopefully you will let the breeder know that they need to test before breeding again... as there is every chance that they could be producing affecteds.
Even your boy could have a carrier parent... and be clear or worse both parents could be carriers and have a clear...

Or you could have bred your girl to a carrier and produced affecteds....

Fantastic! Thats great news. happy dance

Congratulations on your good news 🙂
