In response to member requests, the AVMA has, in collaboration with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, developed a new client education brochure on leptospirosis.
The document provides a description of leptospirosis along with basic information about distribution of the disease, animals at risk of infection, and spread of the disease. The document goes on to cover signs of infection, diagnosis and treatment, risk of human infection, and methods of prevention.
The brochure is available at www.avma.org/products by clicking on "Brochures" and then on "Client Information." English and Spanish versions of the brochure are downloadable for free in PDF format. The English version is available in print form by order in packages of 50 via the website or by calling (800) 248-2862, Ext. 6655.
