New Jersey is seeing an uptick in Leptospirosis cases. Leptospirosis is a bacteria that lives in water or warm, wet soil. It causes a variety of flu-like symptoms, but it can develop into a more severe, life-threatening illness that affects many organs in dogs, mainly affecting the kidneys and liver. The most common way dogs become infected is by coming in contact with the urine of infected animals in stagnant water and damp ground in shaded areas. Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease, meaning the potential is present for the bacteria to be transmitted from animals to humans.

Your pet’s health and well-being is our number one concern. A wellness examination gives us the chance to evaluate your pet’s overall health and to detect problems before they turn into serious illnesses. Because most pets age more quickly than you do, it is essential that your pet’s be examined at least once a year and as your pets get older, twice yearly. Additional testing may be recommended to diagnose a health problem.
With our doctor team, full-time hospital management, and personable, highly trained support staff, we are able to offer our clients the level of customer service and professional veterinary care they and their pets deserve.
