Valley Fever Treatment Center

What every dog owner should know...

Coccidiomycosis, or Valley Fever as it is more commonly known, is a soil-borne fungus found in the desert Southwest. The spores are picked up by wind storms and are spread over great distances. Most patients develop the disease in the weeks to months following the monsoon rains in the metro-Phoenix area, but year-round infections can occur. More information can be found here.


As a local veterinarian I have always trusted Dr. Aguirre with the care of my patients and I have never hesitated to refer cases. Salt River is a fabulous facility and the staff is very caring. When my personal pets need an internal medicine specialist, this is where I go.

Dr Aguirre has cared for my dogs over many years and covering many different reasons. His expertise is award winning. He always has a suggestion or a solution. Dr Aguirre and his supportive staff treat the whole animal and not just the visible problem.

Dr. Ale Aguirre has consulted on many of my pets over the years and always provided a honest and realistic assessment of the dog's condition. With his help several of our dogs lived months and years longer than other vets expected. We would definitely bring any animals to him in the future.
