Dogs that live in the country or go hiking or camping are at increased risk of contracting the disease. However, leptospirosis is more prevalent in cities, where there is a high rodent population. Vaccination does offer some protection against the disease, but it is not straightforward. The disease may be caused by different strains (or serotypes) of the bacteria. The vaccine must incorporate each serotype to be fully protective and there is no cross-protection from one serotype to another. For example, if a dog is vaccinated for serotypes “A” and “B” but then is exposed to serotype “C,” he may become ill.

Controlling and Preventing Parasites 39 Tricks of the Trade It is especially important to check for ticks after your dog has walked through tall grass or wooded areas, and for fleas whenever your dog is walked in grass. Be certain to do this before bringing the dog back into the house. If you have more than one pet and one has fleas, you can assume that all of your pets have fleas. Finding one flea on your dog means that there are very likely hundreds of fleas, larva, pupa, and eggs in your house. Don’t forget that the flea will spend the majority of its life in the environment, not on the dog, so these parasites may be difficult to locate.

For example, if a dog is vaccinated for serotypes “A” and “B” but then is exposed to serotype “C,” he may become ill. There are five main serotypes of leptospirosis, and the typical vaccine only has two of these. This allows for potential cases of leptospirosis even in vaccinated animals. Fortunately, newer leptospirosis vaccines have been developed that have four of the serotypes, thus offering broader protection. An additional complication of the leptospirosis vaccine is that it may only be effective for six months at a time and thus requires a booster every six months for year-long protection.
