Control scheme for familial nephropathy in cocker spaniels

Clinical cases are apparent between three and 30 months of age and showed anorexia, failure to gain weight, and proteinuria, partly due to raised urinary fibrinogen degradation products (FDP). Later, there is weight loss, vomiting and sometimes diarrhoea, then rapid progression to advanced renal failure.
