  1. Hi Josh,
    I have a 12 year old Border Collie named Zoe and live in Riverside, CA. We have been on several trips to the Phoenix area in the past 2.5 years. Zoe tested positive for Valley Fever at a dilution factor of 4 in her first two tests and positive at a factor of 8 dilutions in her last test. I just had her blood drawn 2 days ago to check again as my vet is not yet ready to treat her. I am still waiting for the most recent results and also asked for a senior blood panel. Zoe seems to have less energy and now has a bony lump on the inside of her right hock. An x-ray taken at the most recent vet visit also shows lytic lesions in a small area near the joint. She also has a bit of a dry cough albeit infrequently. I do not want to wait until it is too late. What can I do to get my vet to be more proactive.
    Thanks for any help you can provide.
