I am a little concerned I was digging out weeds with a pick axe because there were so many weeds at my mothers house. I forgot about the dust in arizona having valley fever in it. It was blowing in my face and once in a while bubbles.

should i take her to a vet just in case to make sure she didn't get it? Right now she is happy and healthy. I'm not to concerned at the moment. But im always worried about her.

Yes dogs can get Valley Fever. I am not in that part if the country, so that's all I really know. I would call the vet in Monday and find out what you should do.

Yes dogs can get Valley Fever. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. They either get it or they don't. Same with people. I lived in Arizona for 25 + years and only had one dog get Valley Fever. They were building a dairy across the street and did a lot of dirt work. My dogs immune system was already compromised by another issue so I think that is what allowed the Valley Fever to take hold.

My friend's dog got it. The vet thinks it contributed to the dog's death.
