Lyme disease is a tick-borne disease spread by deer ticks. When a tick bites your dog, the bacteria can transfer into your dog’s system. Symptoms of Lyme disease include severe pain, swollen joints, weakness, lameness, fever and lethargy. In some cases, aggression, kidney failure and neurological changes occur. Your dog can become infected with Lyme through the bite of an infected tick. Leptospirosis is a zoonotic condition, meaning it can spread to human companions, making the vaccination even more important.
Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that can be found in most animals, including livestock and wildlife (deer, raccoons, opossums, skunks, rats and other rodents). The bacteria are passed via the urine into water sources (lakes, puddles, any standing water) where they reside and reproduce. The bacteria can survive for long periods of time in water, wet soil and infected urine. Your dog can become infected with Leptospirosis by drinking, swimming in or walking through contaminated water.
These vaccines need to be boostered in 2-3 weeks
in order to be fully effective.
