Medical Diagnosis of Blastomycosis?: Yes
Where Caught: In Northwestern Ontario near Lake of the Woods
Symptoms: Lameness, fever, cough, swollen and weepy eye
Treatment: Sporanox for at least six months
Prednisone for two weeks
Cost of Treatment: around $600 total by the time we are done if no further complications arise
Additional Comments: We caught this way early and started treatment within 5 days of first symptom - I believe this has been key to his quick recovery. Within two weeks of starting the Sporanox he was completely back to normal!!!
