In Arizona during 2016, 198,233 tests were run for heartworm, Lyme, and tick fever. Of the total tests run, the majority of dogs testing positive was approximately 1%. Yet in the three hardest-hit counties it is estimated that the potential for dogs to get infected with the Coccidioides spp. organism is up to 28%. There is no central agency collecting information on how many tests are run or how many dogs are infected. It's unknown how many pet owners have their dogs tested routinely for the Cocci organism.
The Canine Valley Fever Project's goal is to document this disease and raise public awareness to ensure that no dog goes untreated or misdiagnosed.
