Veterinarians in Chicago has warned dog owners about the increasing cases of a bacterial disease that is fatal to dogs and can be passed on to humans too. The disease is called leptospirosis and they said that they are alarmed about the recent rise in incidents of the disease in Chicago which is because of increasing rat populations and recent wet weather.
Lepto is a bacteria found in rats and is usually passed on to dogs through the consumption of standing water or when they step on it with their paws when they lick their paws they will be infected. The bacteria that causes leptospirosis is spread through the urine of infected animals and can live in water or soil for weeks to months.
Veterinarians in nearly every state are diagnosing more cases every year, so the need to protect dogs is on the rise.
Symptoms of leptospirosis are similar to those of the flu, which includes vomiting and diarrhea. There is a vaccine but it isn't foolproof because there are many strains.
If left untreated, it can lead to kidney damage, meningitis (inflammation of the membrane around the brain and spinal cord), liver failure, respiratory distress, and even death.
In humans, it can cause a wide range of symptoms, some of which may be mistaken for other diseases. Some infected persons, however, may have no symptoms at all.

As a pet owner this is one of my fears, since I consider my pet as part of my family and I worry about who will take care of my pet when I'm gone or if I'm incapable of caring for my pet.
I read on the 12news.com that you actually have options on what to do incase you outlive your pet. You can set up a trust account and assign a pet guardian. However, if you can't find someone willing to take your pet, there are other options to prevent your pet going through a public county facility or shelter. You can entrust your loving pet to "Furever Friends Rescue." They are a nonprofit organization and they have managed to adopt out over 1,500 dogs and cats and helped over 300 families.
People who are facing assisted living, nursing homes, hospice or those dealing with the death of a loved one now have an option to entrust their pets to be put up for adoption in a new loving family.

For dogs howling is like an infectious laugh, if they see you howling most of the time they howl back. YouTube user "HydraDelDiablo" uploaded an adorable video of a German Shepherd dog howling with the wolves in the movie “Zootopia.” It's really funny, specially if you have already watched Zootopia. If you did then you'll remember Gary the white wolf who is a security guard at the Cliffside Asylum. When he caught the scent of Nick Wilde, Judy Hopps started to howl that made Gary to howl too. Another wolf named Larry told Gary to stop howling but they eventually succumb to the infectious howling. Well, looks like the German Shepherd joined the fun.
