Program Title: Leptospirosis in Dogs: Why it should be on your diagnostic radar


2 CE Credit Hours


This lecture will focus on early recognition of clinical signs, with a discussion of the common diagnostic tests available (including the recent introduction of a new bed-side test). Currently available vaccines effectively prevent Leptospirosis and a discussion on the annual vaccination of dogs in our region, will take place. The lecture will follow with a group of case examples, among them some unique presentations of Leptospira-affected patients at our hospital (MVRH), their treatment and follow-up. General public health considerations and a segment on how to answer client questions following diagnosis, will be presented.
