Species which are pathogenic to dogs include:
- Westerdykella reniformis
Clinically affected dogs are rarely reported but a case of chronic azotemia has been reported in a dog with renal pyuria and filamental hyphae found on urine culture. The dog subsequently developed hyperphosphatemia and diskospondylitis.
