Valley fever is a systemic fungal disease endemic in the western US.
Valley Fever thrives in semiarid regions found in AZ, CA, NM, NV, UT, TX, OR, WA
Just walking playing, or digging outdoors puts dogs at risk
More than 30 million dogs live in or travel to endemic areas each year
Symptoms include Coughing or difficulty breathing, Fever, Lack of appetite, Depression, Seizures and Open sores that do not heal
Once infected, treatment requires months of antifungal therapies, which can be expensive and carry the risk of side effects.
