Leptospirosis in Dogs
Your dog may love swimming in lakes and romping in the woods, but a dangerous disease lurks in these areas. Not only can your dog get sick, but it can be spread to your family members as well.
Leptospirosis is caused by a bacteria spread through soil, water, and the urine of infected animals. If not caught and treated early it can be deadly.
Fortunately, vaccination can protect dogs from leptospirosis. Preventing your dog from drinking from puddles of standing water or from swimming in lakes, streams, or other bodies of water that may be contaminated also reduces his risk of exposure. Discuss protecting your pet from leptospirosis with your veterinarian today.
