Preventative Medicine to Help Your Pet Live a Long, Healthy Life

Viruses

  • Leptospirosis: A bacteria-cased disease usually spread by infected water. It causes fever, lethargy, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, and jaundice in your pet. Severe infections can cause organ failure and death. It can be treated by antibiotics, but the bacteria can be carried for months afterwards and their urine will remain a health hazard to both other animals and humans. Leptospirosis in humans can be fatal.
  • Canine distemper virus: Spread by bodily fluid contact, there is no specific treatment and dogs with severe symptoms often die. Those who survive commonly have neurological difficulties later in life. Symptoms include fever, coughing, diarrhea, and vomiting.
  • Canine parvovirus: Spread by contact with feces from infected dogs, it mainly affects puppies, but can also be seen in dogs that have not had regular booster vaccinations. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration. Without treatment, 80% of dogs with parvovirus will die. Treatment has an approximately 85% success rate.
  • Infectious canine hepatitis: Infection is passed via bodily fluid contamination, and the virus can survive in the environment for prolonged periods. There are two types of the virus, a kennel cough-type infection and a liver infection (hepatitis). Symptoms are almost identical to parvovirus. The symptoms can be treated rather than the main disease, but most dogs will survive.
  • Bordetella, or kennel cough: This is a combination of parainfluenza virus and bordetella bronchiseptica. The vaccine should be given to all dogs, whether they are exposed to other dogs to not, or are frequently kenneled or not.
  • Rabies: Dogs traveling abroad should also be given a rabies vaccine and puppies that are 12 to 14 weeks or older must be vaccinated against rabies by law.
