First-I don't know how I missed this-especially it being a sticky. Secondly-thank you for being proactive and using a painful experience to help all of our dogs. I'm not terribly familiar with this disease (am going to look at the website after posting), but have known a couple of dogs that were lost to blasto. They never had a chance due to an inability to diagnose in time, which is exactly what makes this disease something to make owners aware of.
My dog has a vet appointment scheduled soon & he was in TX last year and just returned a couple weeks ago from a couple months this winter. Had you not posted this thread-I would have no idea that he could be in danger. If the 200 dog limit hasn't been reached-I'd like to submit a sample.
Again-THANK YOU!! Our dogs give us everything they have day in and day out, so we owe them nothing less than taking every precaution to keep them healthy, happy and safe.
