Veterinarians in San Diego are seeing more and more cases of a bacterial illness in dogs called leptospirosis.
The rise doesn’t qualify as an outbreak just yet, but the illness is spreading quickly at local dog parks and boarding facilities.
In San Diego, our pets can have it pretty good at parks, beaches and open space for walks and play. But veterinarians warn it’s also those places that may be facilitating the spread of leptospirosis.
