Locality: Iron, MN
Medical Diagnosis of Blastomycosis?: Yes
Where Caught: Probably on our property. We had recently built a new house and were still doing a lot of landscaping. But we had also been camping in a couple different areas that are known for Blasto.
Symptoms: Puck started with a cough that progressed into listlessness, fever & throwing up. She was rapidly losing weight.
Treatment: She was on Itraconzole for 6 months.
Cost of Treatment:
Additional Comments: As of June 2008 Puck is doing very well, but I am constantly worried about a relapse. Every time she coughs or seems to have a hard time breathing I am afraid she is having a relapse.
