Leptospirosis is a disease caused by infection with Leptospira bacteria, which can cause deadly kidney or liver disease in pets. It is also a zoonotic disease, which means it can be spread from animals to people.
Dogs can become infected and develop Leptospirosis if they come in contact with infected urine, contaminated soil, water, food or bedding; through a bite from an infected animal; and by eating infected tissues or carcasses.
Annual vaccination is recommended for all dogs. At Baldwin Harbor Animal Hospital, we offer a vaccine that effectively prevents the disease and protect dogs for at least 12 months.
