Important topic

I got an French bulldog in 2021. He was about 1year & a half when he got super sick. Took him to a VGH emergency hospital and they encouraged me to have X-ray and labs totaling $895. I declined and wasn’t advised they suspected Valley Fever. So a couple more weeks went by. Still having symptoms but not as severe. Started coughing, didn’t know that’s what he was doing. Called around and found a vet with a $30 ov. Then they explained they had to do the tidder blood test and finally got a dx. And got a prescription for diflucan which is expensive. Ugh. Not a lot of info about this so thank you!
