About Leptospirosis

Leptospirosis is a deadly bacterial disease spread by wildlife and domestic animals. It is a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be passed from animals to people. All breeds and sizes of dogs are at risk. Common leptospirosis carriers include raccoons, skunks, opossums, squirrels, rats and other dogs. Livestock can also carry the disease. Leptospirosis should be considered if a dog has a fever, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea and/or lethargy. Early recognition is important for a full recovery.
