Sorry to keep going on and on about Duke, but I don't think he's out of the woods yet. He seems to have taken a turn for the worse. wheezing alot again, diarrea, and shaking more and more, even when sleeping. He hasn't eaten for two days, but he's still drinking.I don't think he is doing so well.. We were talking just yesterday about how his eyes looked so sunken. Back to the vet on Monday. (sigh)
I looked this up on the internet, not very encouraging.. :(
It's from

"The prognosis is guarded for animals with severe lung involvement and for those with eye or nervous system involvement. Approximately half of dogs with severe lung involvement experience a worsening of the respiratory function during the first week of treatment. This complication is thought to be caused by rapid killing of the fungal organisms and can lead to death. It is very difficult to treat animals with nervous system involvement. Those with advanced eye involvement have a poor prognosis for return of vision."
