Leptospirosis has become a growing concern in recent years even in cities in suburbs. This potentially zoonotic disease is spread via the urine of wildlife with common carriers being raccoons and skunks.  Dogs can also become infected if they come in contact with contaminated puddles, streams, and wet grass. Make sure your dog is up to date on its Lepto vaccination and check out the following links for more information on how you can keep your dog safe.
