**MOST DOGS NEED THIS VACCINE**
This is a very serious bacterial disease of the kidneys and /or liver. It is shed in the urine of domestic and wild animals, and can be transmitted to humans. For most dogs, it is given as a series of 2 vaccines at 12 weeks or older, then every year. For dogs who are truly backyard and patio dogs, it is probably not needed, but remember that our own backyards have night visitors.
Unfortunately, occasional dogs are too sensitive to the vaccine to justify vaccinating, as it is one of the most reactive vaccines we use.
