This vaccination is recommended for all puppies and dogs, especially those at high risk such as dogs attending boarding, grooming or training classes. Dogs can be carriers of the disease, while others become very ill. 


Leptospirosis – known as “lepto” for short, this a deadly bacterial disease spread by wildlife. It causes acute renal (kidney) failure in dogs. This bacteria can survive for long periods in water and wet grass. Any dog who swims or drinks from puddles or streams is susceptible.
