Blastomycosis

Postby roosterbrews » Wed Jul 26, 2017 9:34 am

My PP is confirmed to have Blasto. Just checking what everyone's experience is with Blasto and any suggestions for life from here on. I see alot of stuff on the internet about liver support and re-occurrence. Anything would be helpful. He is on day 2 of the meds and it's not bad yet but I understand it's going to get bad before it gets better. It is showing mainly in his lungs and right front wrist first signs of illness were on Thursday (I thought he just ate something stupid) and by monday he was limping and I brought him in assuming it was lymes.

Wow, I was expecting somewhere further south! I was searching through various sites and one (can't remember which) about 90 of dogs that get Blasto live less than 1/4 from water; do you?
