A Serious Threat: Leptospirosis in Dogs

LeptospirosisIf we told you that there was a disease that could cause kidney and liver failure in your family dog, and that could be found anywhere in the environment that wildlife frequented, wouldn’t you want to know more? Now what if we told you that it could also affect your human family?

Unfortunately, this disease is not a made-up plot in a dystopian narrative. It is a relatively common disease known as Leptopsirosis, or ‘lepto’.

Thankfully, leptospirosis in dogs is able to be prevented in many situations through vaccination. True Care Veterinary Hospital wants its pet owners to be aware of this disease and the importance of prevention.
