I have a four-year-old German Shepherd/Saint Bernard mix that was diagnosed with Valley Fever in the joint of his right leg when he was just a year old.
He's having the same symptoms as when he had Valley Fever.
I have moved away from his primary vet, and the vet I took him to said he knew about Valley Fever and took some X-rays.
I gave the new vet the number of my dog's prior vet, but he will not call to verify the Valley Fever.
I cannot say for sure that your dog's case of Canine Valley Fever has recurred or if the initial infection caused deterioration of the joint that now requires a surgical repair.
