Vaccination options

Vaccination against Leptospira interrogans is only available for the serovars called canicola, grippotyphosa, pomona and icterohaemorragiae.

As a result of long standing use of this vaccine, it is hard to assess how important it is to vaccinate against leptospirosis. (As you might imagine, most recent outbreaks involve serovars for which vaccination does not exist.)

Vaccination against the four serovars mentioned is commonly included in the basic distemper shot (DHLPP - the "L" stands for "leptospirosis"). The vaccine can be made up to omit the leptospirosis portion. Of all the sera in this basic vaccine, it seems to be the leptospirosis portion that is associated with hives, facial swelling, and even life-threatening vaccination reactions much more than any of the other fractions. If there is any question of an animal having a vaccine reaction, leptospirosis vaccine is left out of the mix.

Vaccination injections will reduce the severity of disease but will not prevent infected dogs from becoming carriers.

If you are wishing to provide a safe immunization for your pets then we can provide this nosode for you.

These Leptospirosis ARE SUGGESTED TREATMENTS for Canines.
