We’re always trying to make sure that our members and their clients have at their fingertips all the information they need about general animal-health topics and specific diseases. While we think we do a pretty good job of it most of the time, you often help remind us of what we may be missing.
Case in point: Our newest client brochure on leptospirosis is a direct result of member requests for more client information on the disease. So hats off to you for the suggestion. And while we’re at it, we also have to thank the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine for their invaluable support and expertise in helping us draft and refine the brochure’s content. We couldn’t have done it without them.
Hot off the presses and available in both English and Spanish through the AVMA Store for purchase or download, “Leptospirosis in Dogs and Cats” is a reader-friendly resource covering everything from where the disease can be found and which animals are at risk, to how it’s prevented, diagnosed and treated.
We all know how dangerous lepto can be and how vulnerable dogs are to the disease if they aren’t vaccinated against it. We’re also keenly aware that it’s a zoonotic disease that can make pet owners pretty sick too. That’s why it’s a big part of our job to make sure that pet owners are up to speed. This brochure, along with dozens of others we produce, can help you make sure that your clients have the information they need.
