We had Abbey at the vet yesterday for her rabies shot, and the vet mention they have seen cases of leptospirosis in dogs and are therefore now offering a vaccine for it. Apparently dogs that come in contact with racoon urine are in danger of contracting this disease, which can cause kidney failure.
We don't have any racoons in our area, but thought I'd pass the info on for people that may have this issue.

Here's additional info:

On a good note, she's lost another pound! icon_banana
