Gracie is an eight year old Border Terrier that frequently visits Arizona with her owners. On a recent trip this spring Gracie was infected with a fungal infection call Valley Fever. Also called, Coccidiomycosis, this fungal infection causes fever, coughing, and pneumonia.
After months of extensive antibiotic treatment and bloodwork, Gracie has responded and her symptoms have subsided. This condition, if not treated, can cause bone infection and organ failure. This condition is also seen in people.
We are so proud of Gracie for being so strong and courageous during her recovery.
