Pasco County Animal Services Offers New Core Vaccine for Dogs

Pasco County Animal Services (PCAS) is committed to helping you protect your pet and is now offering leptospirosis vaccinations for dogs at its weekly, low-cost vaccine clinics, as well as to all shelter dogs upon intake.

Leptospirosis is an infectious disease that causes severe illness in dogs as well as other animals and humans.  When left untreated, it can cause serious and life-threatening damage to the kidneys, liver, brain, lungs, and heart.  Pets most at risk for infection are those who frequent parks and trails, have access to open/standing water, and encounter wildlife.

The leptospirosis vaccine is being offered on its own or as part of a combination vaccine that includes distemper.  If your pet has never received the vaccine before, a booster vaccine is required after three weeks.  The leptospirosis vaccine will also be added to our popular Clinic Combo, which includes distemper, leptospirosis, and Bordetella vaccines, as well as a heartworm test.

PCAS Low-Cost Vaccine Clinics are available Wednesdays from 9 to 11 a.m., with no appointment required.  To view all available services, visit: bit.ly/PCASvaccines.

For more information and updates, follow PCAS on Facebook.  You can see all pets available for adoption on Petango.
