Locality: Caledon East
Medical Diagnosis of Blastomycosis?: Yes
Where Caught: Somewhere in Caledon/Adjala. Both my friends dogs have been diagnosed also.
Symptoms: He had a cough only once-twice a day took him to the groomers and as I handed him over she queried kennel cough. Plus we thought he was a 'not quite himself" As I knew he was vaccinated for kennel cough I took him to the vet. Throat swab came back positive, we repeated it as all other tests were negative- tested positive again.
Treatment: Currently on Sporanox and prednizone hasn't developed any other symptoms and seems quite perky but still has a cough.
Cost of Treatment: So far
$1000 for drugs
$500 for vet visit Xrays and Bloodwork
Additional Comments: Am very grateful for excellent vet who quickly diagnosed the problem and hope that Remmie will recover.
