Help asap please

There is nothing to treat until symptoms show. The protocol helps to treat the symptoms it does not fix the problem. There is no cure for Fanconi.

hi, i understand that it dont'cure the problem, but seen as i did the test and taked to john at the ofa office and he told me it's just a matter of time till i start to see signs of it,! wouldn't it be better to start him on some stuff now instead of waiting for signs to show>?? like a high quality -low protain diet on his food , to start now!?. but don't start any meds till the signs show so i know the amount to get him on!.

You should consult or have your vet consult with Dr Gonto about what the best course of action is. I don't think a low protein food is recommended for all Fanconi dogs. A high quality food is good for all dogs in maintaining good health.

well wait… i have some more research i did and it's saying to put the dog on a high qulity, low protein food!. is saying that part of the food stuff is the way to teat the syndrome.

Please read carefully, it is when the dog shows symptoms, NOT BEFORE. Just because he test Prob Affected, this is a LATE onset issue and can show up anytime between 3yrs and 12yrs.. usual being around 6 or 7.

There is NOTHING to treat before he shows symptoms

what does high quality and high protein dog food do for the dog?. and what is the difference on the food!>??

High quality proteins are easily digested and do not tax the kidneys as much as lower quality proteins.

Pedro, your boy isn't sick YET. So, get him on the food Pat recommends and strip test his pee every few days. Do this until you see the color change. THAT is when you need to do the suppliments for him.

what was the food that pat wanted me to get him on??. was it a high qulity low protein ot high qulity and high protein??>! i have the strip and i have started testing him. but how offten should i strip test!??.

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!!.

should i do this in the mid of the month?.

@pedro:

should i do this in the mid of the month?.

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?
