Does anyone have any experience with Rat Lungworm Disease in dogs? We have a 10 month old pup with hind leg issues. He was initially diagnosed by our local vet as having Hip Dysplasia but on referral to a veterinary specialist, that diagnosis has been overturned and they have suggested we consider getting a spinal tap done to eliminate Rat Lungworm as they think it's a likely cause of the lower spinal pain our pup has. I have searched on the internet but come up with very little information about how Rat Lungworm affects dogs and what the prognosis is after diagnosis and treatment, etc. If anyone has any hands-on experience with it, I would very much love to hear from you.
