With all of the demands on our time these days, sometimes remembering to take our furry family members in for a check-up seems like just one more thing on ever-growing to do list. A little investment of time now however, may save you and your pet a lot of care (and money) down the road.
How many of us have come home to find that our beloved dog has destroyed the sofa cushions or worse, chewed up your favorite pair of shoes. This may be due to a problem called separation anxiety. Separation anxiety (SA) is actually one of the most common behavioral problems seen in dogs. Not only can SA manifest as destructive chewing behavior but dogs with SA may bark, howl, dig, or urinate and defecate in the house when left alone.
What is leptospirosis?
Leptospirosis is caused by bacterial organisms called Leptospira which is spread via the urine of infected animals. These bacteria can be shed in the soil and water which can then serve as a source of infection for dogs.
