Blastomycosis (Blasto) is a fungal disease that primarily affects dogs, some cats and, rarely, humans. Infections can be fatal if neglected. Pockets of Blasto infections have been reported across the USA, to include the Eastern Upper Peninsula. It is likely that higher numbers of Blasto infections have been reported in recent years due to increased awareness, as well as from human encroachment into areas where the fungus naturally grows. Learn about the signs, symptoms and treatment from a panel of experts. No fee. No pre-registration required.
