How long does canine leptospirosis last?

What are the signs of leptospirosis, and how long do they last? Dogs usually get sick one to two weeks after exposure. Illness can last days or weeks and may include fever, chills, vomiting, muscle aches or diarrhea. Some dogs may seem to recover after the initial illness, but later develop more severe symptoms.

Can alcohol kill leptospirosis bacteria?

Leptospira require high humidity for survival but can remain alive in environments such as stagnant water or contaminated soil. The bacterium can be killed by temperatures of 50 °C (122 °F) and can be inactivated by 70% ethanol, 1% sodium hypochlorite, formaldehyde, detergents and acids.

How many vaccines should a dog get at once?

Do dogs really need yearly vaccinations?
