Resumen

LUNA, A.M.A et al. CANINE LEPTOSPIROSIS IN MEXICO. Rev Salud Anim. [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.1, pp.01-11. ISSN 0253-570X.

Leptospirosis in dogs is a disease that can have subclinical, acute or chronic presentation. Its diagnosis is difficult due to the multiple clinical aspects and not always jaundice is present. Its symptoms can be sub-clinical; therefore, the serological findings are more frequent than the symptoms of the disease. When the disease shows signs, it can cause death due to hepatic disorders and nephritis. The dogs that survive are carriers of the bacteria through their urine which makes them very risky and an important link in the epidemic chain of leptospirosis in man. The current situation of canine leptospirosis in Mexico is not well known so it is convenient to make a literature review of it.

Palabras clave : Leptospira; leptospirosis; dog; canine; Canicola; Icterohaemorrhagiae; Epidemiología.
