Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease which can infect dogs and humans. (Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be passed from animals to humans.)
How it spreads:
- Bacteria is spread by rodents, raccoons, opossums and other mammals
- It can also be spread through urine, feces and other bodily fluids
Most environments are frequented by these wild animals–especially front and back yards! Exposure to this disease is more common that you may think.
Some symptoms from this bacterial disease:
- lack of appetite
We offer a vaccine which will protect your pet from this disease. All dogs NEED to be vaccinated for this disease because remember, it is transferable to humans.
This vaccine is only $15 per injection. The first time your dog receives this vaccine, it will require a booster shot after 2 weeks. After your dog has the booster, it is then just an annual shot.
