Locality: New Brunswick
Medical Diagnosis of Blastomycosis?: Yes
Where Caught: camping
dazel loves exploring and smelling everything around him so he probably cought it on one of our family camping trips.
Symptoms: Coughing, short of breath, anorexia, temperature, weight loss, weakness he won't go up the stairs as fast as he normally does, he loves to go for walks to explore but he has a hard time getting off his bed. Some days he will eat a bit if we bring him food in small bites wherever he is lying on the ground.
He has had more symptoms.
Treatment: We tried different ones. He has had a couple of shots for pain relief and boosts to help him fight and get stronger. Each shot was good for 48h. Like the vet said: every day that Dazel is living is one more day that he is fighting.
Cost of Treatment:
Additional Comments: Dazel is still fighting with blastomycosis. We diagnosted it very late so it is really important. We have just moved to France, so the vet did not know about blastomycosis. Fortunatlly for us she knew a north American specialist in our town in France that knew about blastomycosis. Thank you to him! This summer is very hot wich does not help him with his breathing, he also has black fur.
He has been having some ups and downs since the we started the first treatment.
I hope he will make it!! I love him so much!!!!! <3
