Shophet noted that in felines, serological techniques alone sometimes are not sufficient to confirm a leptospiral infection because with some serovars, animals may shed the organisms in their urine without having a detectable serological titre or they may respond to infection with low antibody titres that tends to decline rapidly.

Infections could be self-limiting in just 7 days.

Leptospirosis in dogs; a review with leptopirosis on clinical aspects. Arch Med Vet 39, Upon diagnosis of leptospirosis, veterinarians should inform the owners of their zoonotic potential and recommend that they seek medical attention if illness occurs around the time their dog is diagnosed.

Nat Rev Microbiol 7, Prevention should start by limiting contact of dogs with wild animal reservoirs as well as contaminated water Goldstein In Chile, human leptospirosis has been reported as single cases or epidemic outbreaks, but their incidence is unknown because until a few years ago it was not considered as a reportable disease Dabanch Clustering of reported cases of leptospirosis among dogs in the United States and Canada.


Emerg Infect Dis 12, Int J Vet Res 5, The most important primary reservoir host are small feral mammals Levett Int J Syst Bacteriol. Treatment should be started as early as possible and preferably before the fifth day after the onset of clinical signs Van de Maele et al Veterinarians should be cautious in animals with renal disease Sykes et al and they can minimise the risk of occupational transmission by following recommended infection control practices Baer et al The cells have pointed ends, either or both of which are usually shaped into a distinctive hook and have a typical double membrane structure in which the cytoplasmic membrane and peptidoglycan cell wall are closely associated by an outer membrane Levett Methods of oestrus prevention in dogs and cats: Children and pregnant women should keep away from the animal while it is being treated.

However, the extent of human leptospirosis acquired from dogs remains undetermined.

Serological diagnosis of leptospirosis in the Province of Quebec. Immunization protects peptospirosis disease caused by the homologous or antigenically similar serovars and the antibodies produced are relatively serovar-specific Levett Coughing and dyspnoea may also occur with conjunctivitis, rhinitis and tonsilitis. It requires a special medium and incubation for up to 3 to 6 months.

As a result, only limited data on the epidemiology of the infection in feline populations is available. Use of case-control study and geographic information systems to determinate environmental and demographic risk factors for canine leptospirosis.

LEPTOSPIROSIS CANINA by Mariai Restrepo on Prezi

Direct identification on darkfield microscopy has been used as a rapid screening test to identify leptospires in the urine of dogs Bolin but it is no longer recommended because of its technical difficulty and low specificity.


Dogs and cats may have frequent contact with wild and domestic farm animals, therefore they are an important link in the transmission route. Further leptosspirosis is needed to better understand the transmission dynamics and how these are influenced by climatic events, environmental factors, leptospirlsis reservoirs, demographic, social and human trends Lau et al It is a low-yield procedure due to the difficulty in culturing the organism Harkin et al a.

In these species lepttospirosis infection is associated with high antibody titres and a short or negligible renal carrier state BolinGuerra Int J Zoon 11, Leptospira serovars are maintained in cnina environment by a wide variety of domestic and wildlife animal species, which acts as reservoirs of the bacterium and are called “primary reservoir hosts” Greene et al Therefore, PCR appears to have more applicability in defining potential zoonotic risk of leptospirosis.

Some of the assays suffer from a lack of sensitivity and others are lacking specificity Bolin Leptospirosis has a complex epidemiology in which a variety of domestic and wild animal species are involved. The degree of transmission of the infection depends on climate, population density and contact rates between incidental and maintenance hosts Levett J Biosci 33, Disposable bedding should be caninaa in biohazard bags and properly handled.
