Honestly, any good quality food is good and if you are concerned about protein, go with one that is moderate

Strip test at least once a month for about 3 to 4 days in a row

thks tanza, i have been testing him 2x a week!, but i thiank it was high protien food!!. do you guys have any names of food that the healthy basenji's like and names??.! he? very picky!!.

@pedro:

Same time every month is a good way to remember, doesn't matter when during the month.

Again as far as food, you need to read the ingredients and then decided for yourself. There are a number of good foods…

Pat, she might need a bit more help than that..suggestions maybe?

@sharronhurlbut:

I can only answer by naming the foods that I use, I don't recommend things I don't use. The Natural Balance foods are good, Potato and Duck for example. People really need to learn to reseach themselves and feed what they are comfortable with

thks tanza, i'm going today to get him some moderate protien food!!. i have been testing him and sofar it hasnt changed!.

Pedro, we hope you don't have any signs of this illness for many years to come.

Pedro, some of us here have loved and lost b's with fanconi. I just have to tell you that you need to remember is this. THE DOG DOESN'T KNOW HE IS SICK. now read this again.
The dog doesn't know he is sick. He gets up each day and enjoys what happens.
You need to do this as well. YOU know he might get sick on day, but you just prepare for this, and you let it go and enjoy your beloved dog and the life you have together.
Enjoy this time. Watch, but enjoy. Do you see what I mean. Love the time you have now.
