Those of us who live in Arizona should ask our doctors about getting ourselves and our dogs tested for Valley Fever. The symptoms are so different for each afflicted from lethargy, fever, grumpiness, aches and pains in joints, lumps on elbows, flaky nose pads, super rough foot pads, lack of appetite, limping.  It is a fungus. The spores lie dormant in the dirt in Arizona and are stirred up during construction, dust storms, rototilling, digging.  It can be deadly.  It can be cured if caught early enough but if it gets into the bones, it causes irreversible bone degeneration.    << New text box >>
