I won't give my dogs Lepto vaccine. The younger two haven't even gotten Parvo or Distemper since their first two puppy vaccines. I titer them, and their titers are still high, even Kodi, who hasn't had a vaccine in years, still has high titers at 9 years old. (of course, we do follow the law as far as Rabies vaccines are concerned)
I protect my dogs from Lepto by making sure they NEVER drink out of standing water. I carry water for them on every walk. ...And if they showed any sign of getting sick, I would seek medical care immediately, as I always do. Lepto is treatable with antibiotics if caught early.
Everyone has to make their own decisions on vaccines, but I have one with vaccinosis problems, and that's enough.
