Leptospira is also known as Lepto. Typically, this is common in animals and people who are around lakes or ponds where cattle or wild life enter the water often. For instance, if you were duck hunting and your dog were to retrieve the duck out of the water, if the water were infected it Is likely that they just received the disease. Unless you participate in those kinds of activities, it is less likely for your pet to contract this disease. This disease has one thing in common with rabies; it's zoonotic. Your dog may experience some joint pain, a fever, lameness, and depression. Lepto is treatable with some antibiotics like penicillin or tetracycline. In order to give your pet the best protection from this disease, it is best to give them the vaccine. This is a non-core vaccine.
