It most definitely has been a complete roller coaster, especially for us, as he is our first dog. But it is something we can hopefully look back on in several years, and say wow...we got through all of that.

He is the strongest dog I've ever seen in my life. He is doing excellent, and certainly in the best condition in his life.

|Hineni7||Wow! I've heard of it before (I train horses) but never have seen a case.. Do you live in a humid climate? Soo happy he is doing so well, what a nightmare to go through! Praise God he is such a fighter (and a handsome lad). Praying it never returns!|

He contracted a rare and deadly infectious disease called Pythiosis from going into a pond with stagnant water. It is a water mold infection, somewhat similar to a flesh eating bacteria. He had to get it surgically removed, and then he was immediately put on an immunological serum. We are pretty positive that he is cured, but won't be able to test his blood until June 2015.
Here is a good article about Pythiosis; "Swamp cancer": The increasing threat of equine pythiosis

First, extremely happy to hear Loki is doing so well and looks so handsome!! I'm sorry I didn't read all 53 pages (yikes) and basically read the first and last page (and saw the pics).. What was wrong? Was it a bite from a spider or something? Sorry for being lazy and not reading through it all (half head in shame)..
Again, happy to see how well he is doing!
