Leptospirosis

There have recently been reported outbreaks of leptospirosis in dogs in Sydney. This can be a life-threatening disease which is most commonly contracted by drinking water contaminated with infected rat urine 🐭
Affected dogs may show signs of:
🐾 lethargy
🐾 inappetence (eating less than usual)
🐾 drinking more than usual
🐾 vomiting
🐾 diarrhoea
In more advanced cases, some dogs may develop jaundice (yellow discolouration of the gums, skin and whites of the eyes).
This disease is zoonotic (can spread to people) and is highly contagious through the animal’s urine so please take necessary precautions with you and your family and see your doctor if you are concerned.
Although in the area we have not yet seen any animal cases, as a precaution, we are now advising that all dogs are vaccinated against it. This involves 2 vaccinations one month apart. Depending on the time of this vaccination it may be able to be synchronised with their regular vaccinations.
Please be sure to contact us on 6372 6780 to make an appointment to have your dog vaccinated.
