The answer to yesterday's trivia question is... TRUE! Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be spread from animals to people.

Leptospirosis is a potentially deadly bacteria that can be spread to your dog in a number of ways, including from coming into contact with wild animal urine. The bacteria can survive in soil and water for up to 180 days given the proper conditions. Once your dog has been infected, Leptospirosis can be passed to you through their urine (or other bodily fluids).

Leptospirosis can cause serious damage to your dog's kidneys and liver, and can be fatal in sever cases. If infected, your dog may show symptoms like lethargy, vomiting, fever, loss of appetite, depression, and increased thirst/urination.

Seek immediate veterinary care if you suspect that your dog has been exposed to Leptospirosis.

The best way to prevent the spread of Leptospirosis in your area is to make sure that your dog has had the Lepto vaccine. Give us a call today to find out if your dog is up to date on their Lepto vaccine!
