I am sorry to hear you are worried about Gunner and that he has Valley fever. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How much does Gunner weigh? I don't know what pain dosages to recommend without knowing his weight.

Valley fever usually infects the lungs, but can settle anywhere such as his bones. Do you know where his infection is? Has he had Xrays?

I hope you saw my response about Gunner. Can I help with or answer anything else?
