PRAY FOR: Bailey, 4 yo. Valley Fever (Fungal Infection). Lord Jesus we rejoice with dad Danny that Bailey seems to have turned a corner in her struggle to rid her body of killed fungus. We ask that You would clear out every remnant of these insidious fungi from her body. Enable her to run and not cough again. Bring her back to the health she had prior to this disease. Help dad Danny to be watchful and consistent with her regimen to keep the fungus at bay within her. We praise You and thank You that Bailey has the zest for life which had been lost. May she remain cheerful and optimistic. In the Name of Adonai M’falti God my Deliverer. Amen. <3 Caren

Danny McGrath 2-21-20: She seems to be doing very well lately, has an appetite and is overall happy
Prayers for Pets
Is she more energetic?
Danny McGrath
Yes. I would say so. I still try to limit her running because she will start to cough. Which they say is normal, but she barks when she hears noises and she comes and greets me at the door again which is what I’m most happy about. I missed seeing her come running up when I walked in

Psalm 34:4 ESV I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.

Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.”

Awww, the face🤗 How is she today?

Hallelujah! Well, maybe I’ll let people know their prayers are being answered?
Danny McGrath
Yes, please

Oh my gosh you have no idea how that warms my heart to hear! The first day she started doing that again you must have been in tears😂
Danny McGrath
I was so happy ! Just looking at her moping around broke my heart


Prayers for Pets
I always knew this day would come you were doing everything right it just takes a long time to get all of those toxins out.
I know
Danny McGrath
Yeah, it’s a nasty illness
Prayers for Pets
It is. Have they given you a ways to avoid it in future?
Danny McGrath
No, unfortunately it’s in the dirt here in AZ so it can stir up at any time. And can infect people and animals. They say once you have it, you have it for life. It gets better, but symptoms can always flare up


Prayers for Pets
Yes, that makes sense. I was overrun with candida because of Lyme disease treatment I will always have it. I can keep it at bay with the right supplements especially Probiotics. I don’t know if you saw this article that I put together about probiotics that a Vet had prescribed which caused major problems for one of our Page/Group dogs. There are a lot of good suggestions here CHRONIC DIARRHEA https://prayersforpets1.org/is-your-dogs-probiotic-causing-diarrhea-it-likely-happened-to-andy-and-misty/
Is your dog’s “probiotic” CAUSING diarrhea? It likely happened to Andy and Misty –


Prayers for Pets
If for any reason she uses cortisone even topical it can flare up with that anything that diminishes the immune system can bring it back up.
Danny McGrath
I have her on her Flucanazole prescription and I have her on all kinds of supplements for anti-yeast and fungal, vitamin C, Yucca root to help with inflammation, a daily vitamin, and numerous other meds I can’t even remember. It takes me forever to make her food because I have to put so much stuff in it haha. The vet thinks she has a weakened immune system as it is, due to an illness she had when she was a puppy before I adopted her.


Danny McGrath
They think she may have had distemper when she was a puppy, because of ridges in her teeth and they’re not fully developed like they should be for a dog of her size
Prayers for Pets
Yes I remember that now that you mention it about the disease she had as a puppy. I didn’t remember that it was distemper. How odd about her teeth. She is blessed to have you taking such great care of her. Many dogs in her situation would not get the kind of loving care you’ve given her. I’m so happy for you both that this day has come!

Danny McGrath
I know, I think about that all the time. If she wasn’t with me, I dont know who [she] would have ended up with
Prayers for Pets
She definitely needed you, and I think you need her too. No accidents in God’s economy.
Danny McGrath
I love her a lot, and you’re very right about that
