Leptospirosis Alert 10/22/18:
Northstar vets has issued an alert for the NJ/NY/PA area due to a significant spike in leptospirosis cases. See article below. It has been recommended that all animals at risk be vaccinated.
Leptospirosis Spike Threatens Area Pets:
NJ Veterinary Hospital Issues Warning
(Robbinsville, October 22, 2018)– NorthStar VETS veterinary emergency and specialty veterinary hospital in New Jersey is issuing a warning to people in the area with pets. Over the past several months, there has been a marked increase in the number of Leptospirosis cases treated at the hospital and at other veterinary hospitals in the NJ/NY/PA areas.
Dr. Steven Berkowitz, Emergency and Critical Care veterinarian for NorthStar VETS, said, “We want pet parents to be aware of Leptospirosis, and to consider vaccinating their at-risk pets to help prevent spread of the disease. Each individual patient should be assessed by their family veterinarian.”
You and your pet are both at risk for Leptospirosis:
- Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease, meaning that you can also contract this infection from your pet.
- If you have a pet that has Leptospirosis, please contact your health care provider and inform them. This is especially true if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are immunosuppressed for any reason.
- It is most commonly spread through contact with infected urine and either your mucus membranes (lips, mouth, nose, eyes) or an open wound.
- Leptospira bacteria has been found in sitting water including old tires or toys left outside.
- This bacteria is endemic world-wide in wild mice and rats and they are usually the source of the infection.
- This is a curable disease, but necessitates long term antibiotics and other supportive care, and without this, it can be fatal to both you and your pets.
- There is a vaccine for Leptospirosis. Contact your family veterinarian to see if they recommend it for your pet.
Signs and symptoms of Leptospirosis:
- General malaise
- Excessive drinking and urinating
- Waxing/waning fever
- Vomiting or loss of appetite
- Icterus (yellowing of the gums, skin and whites of the eyes)
- Excessive bleeding or bruising
- Kidney and/or liver failure
Animals at risk include those who spend any significant time outdoors, have any sitting water or wet areas in their yard, hike in the woods or near ponds, lakes or streams, or have frequent wildlife in their yard.
