What Is Lepto?

Leptospirosis, often called Lepto, is an infection of bacterial spirochetes. Dogs acquire this when subspecies of the Leptopsira interrogans penetrate the skin and spread through the body by way of the bloodstream. 
 

Where Would My Dog Get It?

Your dog is most likely to encounter this bacterium from wildlife or other infected dogs.

Our first priority is keeping your dog--and every other boarder--safe during their stay with us.  One of the ways we ensure their safety is to insist that every guest have their required vaccinations before they check-in, because in a kennel setting, the health of one dog can affect the health of other dogs.
