Signs of Leptospirosis
Signs in dogs
|Some dogs never display any signs of illness. Others may suffer from a lack of energy and show signs of depression. Some may display any or all of the following signs:|
|A recently published retrospective study3 showed that just over 18% of dogs admitted to a university with renal pathology had undiagnosed leptospirosis. If the disease is not treated, some dogs become very ill and can even die. Lepto kills up to 1 in 5 clinically infected dogs.2 Even if the dog recovers, long-term consequences can include reduced kidney or liver function.|
Lepto carriers can reside in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Take our risk assessment to see your dog's risk level.
Lepto is largely vaccine preventable. Most vaccines have 4 serovars to fight against today's most common serovars.
