Sponsored content provided by Merck Animal Health

Leptospirosis is the most common infectious zoonotic disease worldwide1. Reported cases of zoonotic diseases are on the rise and expected to continue to increase2More specifically, the prevalence of canine leptospirosis has increased in recent years3.

While previously leptospirosis risk was associated more with rural-dwelling dogs, a suburban or urban dog’s lifestyle may put him at risk too. Are your patients at risk? Use the AAHA Lifestyle-Based Vaccine Calculator to help evaluate your patients’ risk.

Vaccination with a four-way leptospirosis vaccine like Nobivac Lepto ® 4 is the way to protect your patients from leptospirosis. To learn more about how to recognize, react to, and reduce Leptospirosis risk in your practice, visit stoplepto.com and download the Lepto SOP.
