Never imagined I would be posting this but we lost our 3yr old boy Buck last week to Pythiosis. I have been doing everything I could think of to figure out what was causing him to vomit. Ultra sound specialist thought it was cancer and went into surgery the next day to show a mass on his aorta and pythiosis all throughout his intestines. Thank you to everyone who helped out on RTF with ideas of what could be going wrong. The kicker was that he reacted so well to predisone the vets thought there was no way it could be fungal disease but it turns out it was. I have no idea where or when he came in contact with it.
I can go into more details of everything we did but really don't feel like talking any more about it. There was NO CANCER in him for those of you asking about the bloodline carrying cancer. for those of you familiar with Pythiosis, it is worse than cancer and is caused by coming in contact with contaminated water. very rare.
