Thor has been diagnosed with aspergillosis. This is an awful, opportunistic fungal infection that occurs when an organism, which does not generally cause disease infects a dog such as dust, common mould and grass clippings. In Thor's case he has the infection in his spine, neck and possibly sternum. Unfortunately for German Shepherds they are more susceptible to this infection.
The next steps for Thor are to CT his spine and neck and take biopsies of the infection. Following that he would go on medication which is set to cost $1600 a month. This medication would only prolong his life by a possible 2 years. It will not cure the infection but will hopefully improve his quality of life. We are not usually people to ask for help however we would like to try. Any donation would be grately appreciated. Thank you.
