Leptospirosis, commonly called "Lepto", is a serious disease that can affect dogs and
people. Infection in cats is extremely rare. It is caused by a bacteria that is shed through
the urine of wildlife hosts, such as rodents, raccoons, and opossums. Most human and dog
infections arise from contact or ingestion of contaminated water, such as lakes, ponds,
slow-moving streams, or puddles. The bacteria is especially hardy in warm water, making
Summer and Fall the most common season for new infections. Infection can also occur
directly from a host animal by bite or contact with their urine. Lepto most commonly
causes kidney and liver failure in dogs. Other signs are possible, such as fever, muscle
pain, neurological disease, and vomiting. Treatment consists of therapy with multiple
antibiotics, as well as monitoring and treating the organ damage that has occurred. Dogs
that are infected are a source of infection for people and must be handled cautiously. Once
recovered, they can continue to shed the organism in their urine for months or even years.
Prevention of the disease is achieved through vaccination, which is very effective against
the most common strains of the bacteria. We highly recommended the vaccine due to the
prevalence of the disease in this area and the risk of infection to people.
Pinetree Animal Hospital
is pleased to introduce a
new product called Trifexis.
Now you can get protection
against fleas, heartworms,
and whipworms in one
monthly, flavored, chewable
tablet. Trifexis combines
two, very effective
ingredients from products
that are currently on the
the medicine in the
Interceptor and spinosad,
the medicine in the flea
Trifexis is safe for dogs
8 weeks of age and older
and starts killing fleas within
30 minutes of ingestion.
Dogs must be greater than
five pounds in order to start
Trifexis. Although it
provides no protection
against ticks, it is an ideal
product for dogs that swim
or are bathed frequently.
Because most topical
products like Frontline and
Advantix require body oils
to cover and protect your
dog's body against fleas and
ticks, Trifexis is a more
effective choice for dogs
with skin conditions, dense
hair coats, and lower body
oil production. The most
common side effect is
vomiting, however, giving
Trifexis with a meal seems
to minimize or eliminate
this problem as well as
improve its effectiveness.
If you are having a difficult
time getting your flea
problem under control, try
Trifexis- the newest, more
cost effective, all-in-one
heartworm and flea
