Eosinophilic Pulmonary Granulomatosis
 
My 6 year old Basset was diagnosed with this rare disease last week. Her only symptom was an occasional cough of about a week’s duration. A lung X-ray revealed 2 large masses which were originally thought to be malignant but turned out to be composed of eosinophilic/inflammatory cells. She is on heavy dose of prednisone in hopes that her tumors will shrink. Has anyone had any experience with this disease?

Always something new.... and that one had me running to a search to find out what it was! So sorry to read this and I hope the treatment will provide the remission needed.

That's a new one for me too, hope the treatment is successful.
