According to Bob Glass, who has been studying Pythiosis for over 20+ years, he said that if the original wound, (meaning Pythiosis), does not "resurface" at the site of the incision within 30 days of the first immunotherapy shot, which was 7/25, then Loki's chances of survival have almost doubled.
It has been 36 days today from his first immunotherapy injection, and there are no signs of any returning Pythium. So this is great news.

|ApselBear||Quick question woogsyboogsy. You said the wound looks great so far, does that mean the cut has already grown back together, sealed up well?|

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been posting on here as much, now that we feel a little more comfortable with Loki's health, we are spending a lot more time with Loki, and doing things with him that everyone normal puppy should experience.
He is doing really good, his incision looks great, and there are no signs of any returning wound. He is starting to get really feisty, and suddenly has more energy than ever before, but I'm not complaining.
We started his 2nd round of immunotherapy injections yesterday, which will be another 3 shots, so 6 shots total, and he received his 4th shot yesterday.
He also swam in the pool yesterday, it has been over 3 months since he has been in any type of water, other than a bath haha, and trust me when I say this, he will NEVER be going into any pond every again!
Thank you everyone so much for all of the support and advice, I promise you that when I say we wouldn't be where we are today without you, I mean it!
