    This question was asked during the webinar on "The Increasing Threat of Canine Leptospirosis ...":

    Any useful data of Lepto serovar in England? Would you use the L2 or L4 vaccination and if so when?

    Answer provided by Dr. Jason Stull & Dr. Michelle Evason:

    We are not familiar with the serovar data in England, however the 2015 European consensus statement on leptospirosis in dogs and cats states, “Given the widespread recognition of leptospirosis in European dogs that have been vaccinated with bivalent vaccines, the use of quadrivalent vaccines is recommended in an attempt to increase the spectrum of protection.”
