Genoa Animal Hospital is currently recommending ALL dogs be vaccinated for Leptosporosis.
The reasons for the vaccination recommendation are:

  1. Northern Illinois is a current “HOTBED” for the bacteria.
  2. Wildlife easily spreads the disease including rats and mice. This means that urban environments are NOT safe.
  3. Contaminated urine is highly contagious.
  4. Healthy dogs can be shedders of the bacteria.
  5. This creates a huge public health risk. People can become seriously ill and even die from this disease.

Your dog will be given a series of 2 vaccinations given 2-3 weeks apart to provide  initial immunity. Yearly revaccination is required to maintain immunity.

Protect your dog and your family today by vaccination against Leptospirosis.
