I’m glad to hear your pup is back home. I’d been checking back to see if you shared an update.

mrscb2bee :  I’m so glad he’s home and healthy again!! Wow, that’s a serious hospital stay. How much did it end up putting you back?

mrscb2bee :  ask for a copy of the blood work and X-rays and pm me pics of them? Ideally a copy of tests from original clinic and the new ones.

Radiologist interpretation is a great idea. Everything is digital now so it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes for the hospital to give it to you.

Where are you living? I would actually think fungal disease is just as likely as cancer.  I currently live in an area where there is no systemic fungal disease, but I used to live where Blastomycosis was prevalent and it can definitely cause lung nodules, same as Histoplasmosis. I’m not too sure about valley fever (cryptococcosis) since I’ve never lived in that area. Unfortunately I have seen cancerous modules in lungs of a pup as young as 9 months but it is quite rare. The other thing that doesn’t make sense is that I wouldn’t expect a cancer lesion to cause initial resp distress and then get better/improve. Once cancer modules cause distress they don’t get better (which doesn’t really fit the original illness). Definitely ask about fungal disease because neither baytril or amoxiclav are antifungals (usually it’s ketoconazole or itraconazole we use, occasionally terbinafine). Keep me posted, might be easier to pm though’
