• I have a Basenji/Dachshund mix that we adopted from the local rescue league last fall. Should I have her tested for Fanconi? With her being a mix, I'm not sure how concerned I should be about Fanconi. My vet didn't mention it at her last visit, but she might not be very familiar with Basenji's. Any advice or information would be appreciated.
    Thanks


  • I've never thought about a mix having Fanconi. Have any ever been tested? I guess it's a possibility.


  • I know other breeds and even humans can get fanconi. So, maybe for your peace of mind?


  • A good idea to test for peace of mind. And pictures, we need pictures of your little girl!


  • I'd love to show you some pictures - how do I get them to post here? When I try, it says the size is too big, and I can't figure out how to resize.


  • If you are positive one parent was a pure Basenji and the other parent was a pure Dachshund then she cannot get Fanconi Syndrome.


  • @YodelDogs:

    I'm pleased to hear that.

    I have a B cross and I was wondering about Fanconi with her.
