Leptospirosis is a extremely widespread disease that can infect a wide range of species, including dogs, rodents and on very rare occasions, people!

This disease is difficult to treat and can be fatal if untreated or if severe enough. It is spread through the urine of infected animals which makes it very easily contracted!

Luckily, Healthy Pet Club members are fully protected against Leptospirosis as a vaccination that protects against it comes as part of being a Healthy Pet Club Member!
