Is valley fever in dogs catching?

My neighbors dog has valley fever, I want to make sure my dogs are safe.

Valley fever in dogs as in people is not easily transferable animal to animal. It is however a disease that is caught by breathing what is in the animal's environment. I would limit the dog's exposure to the air outside or windy or dust storm days.

This disease, once contracted by by an individual or a dog is not contagious. It is strictly liminted to the host that is carrying this fungal infection, so there is no need to be alarmed if you find out that someone's dog has this condition and your dog has come in close contact with it.

No, Canine Valley Fever is not contatagious. It is an fungal infection from the spores that are found in the soil. Digging in dirt is how many dogs become infected.
