My sisters Havanese has LEPTO!
My sister called me last week because her Hav was peeing and drinking a lot. She had no other symptoms so this went on for a few weeks…….She took her to the vet and the vet suspected Lepto! Her dogs kidney levels were bad. I was thinking no way could it be, because it's been sub zero and so much snow here. We've had snow on the ground the majority of the winter. Plus, her dog is always walked around the neighborhood and is always on leash to potty in the yard. My sister lives in NJ and is in a neighborhood. She is no where near the country.
Anyway, the test came back positive for lepto today. I think her dog will be ok. She might have some kidney damage from waiting too long.
I guess I still choose not to do the vaccine. If i notice my guys water bowls becoming empty, I would watch them closely and take them to the vet. I wouldn't wait 3-4 weeks so I think it would be treatable….. tough call.
