PKD is not pleasant and is fatal. Affected dogs will normally:
- have low energy;
- white gums;
- may faint; and
- a common symptom are “golden” coloured stools.
Dogs affected will typically succumb to the disease between the ages of 2-3 years old. A survival to 4 years is considered the outside age range for survival.
Due to thorough testing and careful selection of breeding stock no puppy bred at Tambuzi will be affected by PKD.
