Blastomycosis is caused by a fungus that grows in the soil. You may wonder how the fungus can enter your dog’s body. Fungus releases its spores into the surrounding environment, which can be inhaled by you or your dog and can cause Blastomycosis.

The disease affects various body organs including the whole respiratory system, eyes, lymph nodes, brain, liver, etc. As the fungus grows and spreads inside the body, it affects the organs accordingly. The symptoms worsen depending on the severity and spread of the disease inside the body of the host (Human or dog).
