Pet Health Alert: Leptospirosis

We have just diagnosed another case of Leptospirosis in our immediate area.

Leptospirosis is a serious bacterial disease that infects domestic animals, wildlife, and humans. It is a serious worldwide zoonotic disease, which means it is a disease that can be passed from animals to people, and vice versa.

Rodents, raccoons, skunks, opossums, cattle, and swine can all carry and spread Leptospirosis.
