Your pet can sniff or lick a wet area and get exposed to it, then as they shed Leptospirosis through their urine, humans can pick it up as well. We get more flu like symptoms, while your dogs can suffer from sudden liver/kidney failure or in worst cases, death. Our Leptospirosis vaccines has a 92-94% efficacy. Please read this information fact sheet (2 short pages) to learn more about Leptospirosis and call us with any questions that you might have or if you are unsure if you pets have been vaccinated against it. We are very sad to see our patient leave us this way and we hope to help prevent this in the future. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
