Ginger

Ginger began losing weight about 2 months ago. Her muscles were deteriorating, so we knew something was wrong. We took her to the vet who misdiagnosed her with MMM, which is a muscle disease in german shepards. She was prescribed a very aggressive steroid and antibiotic. We thought she would be ok because she started acting normal again.


Few days after starting steroids she had a very bad nosebleed after a coughing fit... not normal for a dog. Turns out she had valley fever. We got her on antifungal meds, but continued the steroids because the vet said it would hurt her to just pull her off.... The next day she got dizzy, disoriented and could barely walk straight. She was crashing into items in our home and breathing very heavily. The next day she could barely stand. The day after that, she couldnt get up and was barely conscious. We had to put her down because the VF had spread to her brain according to the vet.


To make matters worse, I was just tested positive for VF.


I miss my dog.
