Keeping Up with Canine Leptospirosis

Leptospirosis is found worldwide in both wild and domestic animals, but in small animal practice we are most concerned with this disease in our canine patients. The number of cases has been increasing worldwide, and this may be due to the increased urbanization and contact with wildlife hosts, such as raccoons, skunks, opossums and rodents. As a result, small-animal practitioners across the world are learning to be on the lookout for this infection more and more.
