|The vet, at first, thought she had Valley Fever because those are the symptoms and we live in Arizona. But after 3 blood tests and just as many x-rays they weren't sure what she had. This went on for months and in the meantime, a tooth broke so she went in for surgery to have it removed. While she was under anesthesia, I gave permission to have a lung biopsy done and it came back that she had allergic bronchitis. She's been on two separate treatments of prednisone and I have a supply on hand if she starts with the hacking cough again, but I hate to use it because of the risks involved and her change of behavior.
But, I noticed today that more hair is growing back in patches so maybe being off the pred for awhile is helping. She's very sensitive to cold weather so I hope it grows back fully before the temperature dips.
