Year: 2008

Where Caught: Probably in imported soil in our garden.

Symptoms: Virtually none. Had a very small decrease in appetite and fell trying to jump onto the bed. No cough, weight loss, exercise intolerance or anything else. I only had him tested because Jonah, our other dog, had been diagnosed.

Treatment: 6 months fluconazole.

Cost of Treatment: $120 for urine test, $30/month for meds.
