Companion Animal Parasite Council on Leptospirosis


From my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show, I talk with Dr. Emilio DeBess, Oregon State Public Health Veterinarian and President Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) about leptospirosis.

We discuss what leptospirosis is, and what the real threat is to dogs, and even potentially to all of us.  And how common this preventable disease truly is,

And we do explain exactly how potentially humans can get infected. In the U.S. it’s rare, but still does happen.

CAPC is tracking leptospirosis in real time.
