Together with The Cat Friendly Clinic programme, Stamford Veterinary Centre aims to create a more cat friendly environment and so reducing the stress levels of our feline patients and making the visit easier for you also.

Vaccinating Against Lepto 4

You may have noticed recent publicity in the media or heard from other pet owners about the new Lepto 4 vaccine from MSD Animal Health.
Leptospirosis is a disease that can lead to severe liver & kidney disease in dogs. It is caused by spiral bacteria called Leptospira Interrogans, which are spread in the urine of infected dogs - as well as rats, mice and a variety of other mammals.
There are more than 5 types or 'serogroups' of  Leptospira. We currently vaccinate against the two most common using the existing Lepto 2 vaccine. These are serogroups canicola and icterohaemorrhagiae.
The new Lepto 4 vaccine gives additional protection:
Reduction of infection with serogroup Australis
Reduction of infection and spread of serogroup Grippotyphosa
Currently in the practice, we have opted not to start routine vaccinations with Lepto 4 for the following reasons:-
There is currently little evidence to suggest that the other types of Leptospira are significantly prevalent in the UK- much of the data is obtained from studies in Europe.
After the second vaccine, it is three weeks until your puppy is fully protected by the vaccine (under current licence), compared to only one week with the current vaccine. This delays taking the puppy out & about for socialisation at the crucial age of under twelve weeks.
We do have Lepto 4 vaccines at the surgery and we will be happy to vaccinate your dog with Lepto 4 if you request it.
We keep up to date with any new evidence as it appears and will adapt our vaccine protocols in the future if it becomes necessary.
Please speak to one of our veterinary surgeons if you would like more information or advice.
