- Leptospirosis is a serious bacterial disease that is spread
through the contact with urine from an infectious dog and
certain strains can be transmitted to humans.
- The disease itself causes the dogs to become lethargic and
weak. Some of the other symptoms include abdominal pain,
increase in water intake as well as a marked increase of
urination. Some will form painful sores in the mouth, on the
gums and tongue. The tongue may also form a thick, brownish
coating. Other symptoms may include bloody diarrhea, vomiting,
and a change in the color of the whites of the eyes.
- Due to the extensive damage caused to the digestive tract,
liver and kidneys, leptospirosis is often fatal. For those who
do survive, recovery is very slow.
