Protecting Your Dog from Leptospirosis

We’re here to help you cover your dog against this nasty bacteria!

LET US HELP YOU GIVE YOUR PUP THE BEST PROTECTION POSSIBLE

You may have heard recently that there have been several reported and confirmed cases of a disease called leptospirosis in dogs in Sydney. Whilst this is a disease that has been vaccinated against for working dogs on farms for many years, we have not needed to cover our dogs against it in Sydney. Unfortunately and for the safety of our dogs, it looks like we will now need to.

Leptospirosis is most commonly spread in the urine of infected rodents or in water that has been contaminated by the effected rodents. The leptospirosis bacteria can then infect our dogs if their skin or mucous membranes (mouth, vulva, penis) comes into contact with the contaminated water. The leptospirosis infection can then be lethal, attacking the kidneys and organs of our dogs, with signs of initial vomiting, lethargy and bloody urine.If you notice any of these signs please contact us immediately.

Leptospirosis can be very difficult to treat and so prevention is always better than cure. Firstly, keep you dog on a short lead when walking and ensure they do not drink from puddles or swim in any known contaminated water source. We can also offer a high level of protection by vaccinating your dog against leptospirosis (note this is not covered in their normal C5 vaccine) by giving 2 vaccines 4 weeks apart.

Please call on 9888 1833 or book online to get your pup protected!

We welcome all breeds & sizes!
