Leptospirosis

Lepto

There have been recent reports in the news about veterinarians seeing an increase in the disease Leptospirosis in Florida. The disease is spread through the urine of infected animals (including rats, Opossum and Raccoons). Control of rodents and removal of standing water that your pet can get to is the best prevention. Dogs that are more at risk include hunting and sporting dogs, dogs that live near wooded areas and dogs that live on or near farms. There is a vaccination for Lepto but we do not routinely give it, as intense adverse reactions to the vaccine are not uncommon and the vaccine only protects against the more common strains of the disease. This is not a common disease so we do not vaccinate dogs for it unless they are risk. The following link has more information about the disease from the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/leptospirosis/pets/index.html. If you have additional questions or would like your pet vaccinated please let us know.

Trifexis Information

Trifexis
You may have recently heard some disturbing reports of dogs becoming ill or dying after using the heartworm preventative Trifexis. Unfortunately, the information that is being distributed on the internet, and even on TN is not providing consumers with the full story. The findings on necropsy (autopsy) were that there were underlying medical issues and the deaths were not a result of the Trifexis. For more information please see the following report from the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association)- https://www.avma.org/KB/Resources/Pages/TrifexisQuestionsTalk-to-your-veterinarian.aspx. If you still have questions or concerns you can contact the maker of Trifexis (Elanco) at (888) 545-5973
