HEALTH TESTING



All responsible breeders are excited about these tests.
Our test results are available for inspection. If you would like to verify them, visit www.offa.org.
Below the test result table, we have included is a simple breeding combination possibility chart.
If you are interested in more in-depth genetic information, there are many places you can do this type of research.

FANCONI SYNDROME
is a genetic kidney disorder seen
with greater frequency in
Basenjis than in any other
breed. Left untreated,
Fanconi affected Basenjis
will die as major organs
fail from lack of essential
nutrients.
There is no cure for Fanconi Syndrome
And if your primary vet is not familiar with Fanconi Syndrome and the Gonto Protocol--most
are not--you may face a costly, up-hill battle in getting your Basenji diagnosed and treated.

Not all expressions of Fanconi Syndrome are alike. Some dogs respond well to the protocol and adapt
to taking in excess of 20 pills a day.Other Basenjis may not be as adaptable, or they experience more
acute symptoms and complications. Resistance to treatment/complications will severly shorten their
life span. Additional side effects from the syndrome may include, but are not limited to, chronic urinary
tract infections, incontinence, muscle wasting, and seizures.

There is a test for Fanconi Syndrome
Thanks to the support of Fanconi research from concerned members of the Basenji Club of America
(BCOA), research scientists at the University of Missouri have recently developed a genetic linkage
marker test, AND NOW A DNA TEST!!, for Fanconi Syndrome.
If you currently own a
Basenji and want to know your dog's DNA status, instructions on how to test are available at the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) www.offa.org. DNA status of individuals
impacts the overall health of the breed, results are public information and are available through the
Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) website.
You can make a difference
Vigilance when looking for your next best friend will pay dividends not only to the longevity of your
newest loved one, but to the long term health of the breed. Before you agree to purchase a puppy, search
the health pedigree of the sire and dam at the OFA site using their registered names or numbers
(URL link at left). Responsible breeders will only breed clear to clear, clear to carrier, or as a last resort,
clear to affected.One parent must be DNA tested as a clear for the best odds that the puppy
you are consdering will not become symptomatic of Fanconi Syndrome. If the parents have not been
tested, ask that the puppy's DNA be tested before you commit or find another breeder.
For Pete's sake! Be a part of the solution
That's Tiger Pete above. He was symptomatic of Fanconi when he turned three and died at age six.
Fanconi Syndrome can be eradicated from this breed forever with genetic testing and proper breeding
practices. Do not purchase a puppy from any breeder who does not have a clear Fanconi test result
on at least one of the parents
and the documentation to back up those results. This disease will
hurt your wallet, your heart, and most of all your dog.

You can help end the heartache and pain by supporting breeders who use all available health testing.
