What Is Valley Fever & Is Your Dog At Risk?


Valley Fever is becoming more common in dogs in certain parts of the country. Valley Fever is caused by the fungus coccidioidomycosis that lives in the desert soil in the Southwestern US. The spores grow well in hot, dry climates like AZ, CA, New Mexico and Southwestern Texas. The fungus lays dormant in soil, but dust created by digging or sniffing in the dirt can release the spores. Symptoms are a harsh dry cough, fever and lethargy. Valley Fever can affect your dog’s bones and joints, causing severe pain. Natural immune support and antifungal remedies like K9 Yeast Defense and Power Probiotic are helpful. Amazing Omegas and Curcumin For Pets can help reduce inflammation. If your pet has been diagnosed with Valley Fever, Ask Ariel has the best supplements to help your pet feel better!

If you live in the Southwestern United States where Valley Fever is most prevalent, you may not be able to protect your pet completely. Taking precautions by reducing their exposure to soils and airborne dust can be an important step. 

Ways to protect your dog:

  • Avoid activities that generate dust
  • Stop your dog from digging
  • Prevent sniffing in rodent holes
  • Cover the yard with grass or gravel
  • Walk your dog on paved paths vs. trails

If your dog is not feeling well and showing any signs of Valley Fever, seek veterinary attention early as it will help your dog's prognosis.
