My three year old male tested positive for three strains of lepto in the fall of 2008. These three strains are not covered by the traditional lepto vaccine. I believe there are seven strains of lepto. Maybe the Lepto 4 covers more strains? Just a thought. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will have some input. We had to put Sam on antibiotics for three months.

Lepto was offered as an "optional" vaccine here; I did have it added because we live in an area where wildlife frequently wanders thru. I will have to look at our paperwork to see what it says.

I don't use DHLPP combo vaccines - dogs tend to react to the lepto vaccine in that particular vaccs. Instead I give my dogs the Lepto Vanguard 4 vaccine from Pfizer - it's two injections given 3-4 weeks apart.

I haven't figured out if I'll do an annual booster on this or not. I welcome comments/experiences...
