Basenji Passing Out?

I have a dog named Flash who is a Basenji cross.  He is 4 and I have had him for 6 months he came to us to from a shelter.
 
Flash passes out when he get a fright.  We have had over $1000 worth of tests done by the vet and have come up with no answers.
 
Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.

  1. I have never heard of a basenji passing out from fright. Not to be funny, but the only animal I have seen or heard of is pigmy goats. Perhaps u can Google pigmy goats and why they pass out from fright and it could possibly hence u in the right direction. Just a thought

  2. I’m sure they’ve tested Flash’s heart for irregular rhythms? Sounds like what happens with humans and a vasovagal response where they faint.

    Here are some articles about it.
