My 8 yo Basenji, Astoria, a rescue we’ve had for 4 years, is the sweetest dog there is. Her original owner passed away and we took her in. She has had problems with her teeth (gingivitis) and it was as part of blood work done prior to teeth cleaning that the results showed high ALT levels.
Astoria has been drinking a lot of water and has been having accidents in the apartment even though I walk her 3-4 times a day. Based on the blood work and other tests, the vet has her on Denamarin and the Science Diet / Liver food. However after 5 months of treatment, her ALT levels are very high. I am taking her to an internist for more tests but after reading the forum, I am dreading the fact that she might have Fanconi disease. Have any of you had a similar experience? I live in NYC and will take her to the Animal Medical Center for evaluation versus going back to her vet. I am so worried.
