This year we have been informing our clients of the Lepto vaccination and getting them to vaccinate against it when their furbabies are due for their next vaccination as in 2023 this vaccination will be required to board or train dogs. We are questioned daily as to why we have made this decision and as you can see from the below news clip, this is a real and present danger which we have been aware of for a long time.
Just because your dog comes from a “safe” area doesn’t mean it will be safe, vets, dog parks and boarding kennels have dogs come from all over Australia which could be carriers.
It is very sad to hear from some clients, that many vets in NSW and ACT either refuse to vaccinate against Lepto stating it is not an issue here or we hear clients have to really sell the fact that they require this vaccination!
This is a serious disease which we take very seriously, which can kill your loved ones!
LEPTOSPIROSIS LATEST ALERTS 13th April 2022 – Unfortunately another case of Leptospirosis has been confirmed on the Northern Beaches with a dog from Ingleside sadly passing away.
25th March 2022 – Sadly there has been a puppy living in Marrickville who was positive for Leptospirosis and passed away.
We highly recommend you vaccinate your dog now for Leptospirosis. Click here to book an appointment online
Mice, rats and other rodents can carry infections that can spread to humans and our pets, and with a mouse plague currently occurring we’re reminding pet owners of the risk of leptospirosis – and infectious disease which can be carried by rodents.
Please allow 14 days if you are getting your first C5/C7 vaccination needle done for your furbaby prior to dropping off for boarding or training.
It can be stressful to board your pet. If you have any questions or concerns about how we make your pet’s home away from home, please reach out. We will get back to you soon!
