Fanconi Syndrome in Dogs

Dog being treated for Fanconi Syndrome


Fanconi syndrome is a genetic disorder of the kidney tubes where substances normally absorbed into the bloodstream by the kidneys are released into the urine instead. A dog suffering from Fanconi syndrome typically has a history of weight loss, poor hair coat and sometimes weakness. The outlook is exceptionally good with early detection and treatment.


This condition can now be controlled but not cured. Approximately every six to eight months, a multivalent blood workup, a urinalysis, and a venous blood gas test need to be done on a Fanconi afflicted dog by your veterinarian. Based on the dog's individual tests, appropriate, individually tailored, and easily obtainable nutrients are included with the dog's daily meals. These oral supplements resupply the nutrients which, the tests identify as being lost in the urine.

Cost to Treat: $9,000 to $11,000
