This virus is bacterial and similar to canine hepatitis as it infects the liver and the kidneys. However, Leptospirosis is mainly spread through contact with infected urine. This virus can be fatal or can cause permanent kidney damage, leading to death later in life.
The most important thing to know about this virus is that it can be passed on to humans.
|Our priority now is on housing the remaining 16 dogs from the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, many of whom have owners, but who are unable to take them back. The area (land) where the Earthquake dogs are now housed, has been rented for many years but now due to changing circumstances of the owners, is due to be returned to them. That means there is some urgency in building new kennels for them in Sasayama. Your continuing support is appreciated.|
