We are now recommending all dogs be vaccinated for leptospirosis!
Leptospirosis is an infectious disease that causes serious illness in dogs, other animals, and even people. Due to the rise of leptospirosis in the Mid-Atlantic area, we are now recommending that all exposed dogs be vaccinated for this disease.
Leptospirosis is a bacteria that can cause kidney and liver failure in dogs. It is transmitted to dogs through the urine of infected animals or through contaminated water. This disease could be transmitted to humans from infected animals. Please call our office for more details and to schedule your dog for the vaccine.
