Blastomycosis Alert

When: 2014-10-02 09:49:00 -0700
Where: 805 W. Vanderbilt Drive, Oak Ridge, TN 37830


Our dog has contracted Blastomycosis. We don't take him to the lake because he doesn't like water. We take him for walks at our apartment complex and to potty in the forested patch behind our building. This patch is likely where he picked it up as it is quite dense. Unfortunately, this is also the area of a city greenway, which is specifically advertised for people and pets to walk. I am sending the same information to the city greenway director as well.
