So when a big storm hits a lot of freshwater russia's out of rivers into these coastal waters and the salinity can drop dramatically that can cause lesions to develop on dolphins bodies diagne says that when the water returns to normal the lesions can heal and dolphins may recover but if the low salt levels persist in severe cases.

"My two year old dog was just like knows possible left out that that's what they've concluded more getting our next tighter after a week of them not knowing and we thought he was going to die. Getting the word out to local veterinary practices, while we yes, you know, the veterinary a world is pretty small, and then this word has gotten out, but the likelihood of your pet getting leptospirosis from ceiling screaming low and less that Pat is directly interacting with the c line. That is sick blocked. There is leftist process. Entrust Royal animals that is that that dogs can become exposed to by drinking water at a puddles that have been contaminated by urine from from deer or or mice. There's also a vaccine for leptospirosis for dogs, which we which I would encourage people to get if they take their pet out where they could become exposed to these type of environments t wants to know is this cat, scratch fever should cat owners. Avoid putting cat urine or feces and toilets. No, this is a completely different disease from cat, scratch fever. And does the fact cats really doesn't or can it can I mean all mammals can contract leptospirosis? Why are we here mainly by dogs? Well, just like where they live and also every species has different susceptibility to this disease. Just like sea lions are get severe disease and elephants seals don't. So the same with dogs. They're more susceptible to upto than cats. Are we're gonna go more your calls. Let's go next to a caller in Burlingame. Joining us, Michael you're on the air. Good morning. Yes. This is Michael Gary. Yes. So I'm a base swimmer with the dolphin club. And four of our neighbor neighbors from Southend were bitten by sea lions last year, any advice for people who swim in the bay and how to interact or avoid the sea lines. Besides not swimming. Yeah. Yeah. There was definitely a few bites last year in the bay with with swimmers and. You know, what that that, you know, when you're swimming in the bay it's hard to avoid these animals in. It's it's important to not try to interact with them, and and hopefully those bites in that incidences who have stopped, but as far as being exposed to leptospirosis, I loved aspire a dozen survived very well in salt water, and and you know, the ocean is a big dilute or so it'd be very unlikely that a swimmer would would contract this disease. It's probably good news, Michael. But I thank you for the call and Ed wants to know, what do you do with all the animals that have died. L which is quite a few animals that we've had over two to twenty is we do full autopsies new crops on them and collect samples for different research projects to better understand what what's different about this lepto compared to previous years. And then we the carcasses that are leftover get incinerated and disposed of we're talking if you just joined us about hundreds of sea lions hit with a deadly disease leptospirosis, which affects the kidneys and can indeed be lethal and can affect humans and can affect dogs and other mammals and Shawn Johnson is with us. He's director veterinary science and a veterinarian he's with the marine mammal center in sausalito. And we'll go to more of your calls. And if you want to join us in the time remaining, it's eight six six seven three three six seven eight six we go to Fairfax and David welcome. You're on the air. Thank you. You actually just answered my question would Michael earlier because I'm a surfer, and I was curious about on tackling the water. The other part was. What area that higher risk than others for people who spend a lot of time in the water? High-risk for those very difficult question to answer. I'm where there's a large number of a sea lions together, there's gonna be more urine and other excrements into that environment. So if you you technically you're not supposed to be disturbing sea lions and getting that close to them. So I I hope that if you keep your distance from the sea lions, and where they are hauling out, and I'm living that you would have pretty low risk of contracting this disease. What about the risk for the sea lions themselves? You spoke before about the fact that you expect this number to rise. And maybe even go up to four hundred before we get to November. What can we do prophylactically? Or is there anything we can do? Well, this is a naturally occurring disease in this population. There's there's no way to vaccinate a large population like this. And and it's a natural cycle where some animals get very sick. And those are the ones that we're seeing another one's recover from the disease have immunity, probably for the rest of their life from this disease. There's at this. You know, there's nothing that we can do for each individual for an individual sea lion. Vaccinations. There is for dogs by the banana for wildlife, and there would be no way to to vaccinate a large wildlife population. Like this. What's more important is that we understand how this disease is cycling through this large population. And and being able to predict when it's going to happen. So like centers like us. It's remarkable center are prepared to rescue an extra two hundred animals that we didn't we weren't accounting for and having the resources available to do that. And then and this is a very unique disease dynamic that will help scientists in research understand how leptospirosis and other infectious diseases may be affected by environmental changes in the future. And how the environment can can really change the a disease dynamic and ecology that has been consistent for decades. And then all of a sudden, it changed because of increasing ocean temperatures, it's really interesting case study for. Environmental change changing disease. Nikki wants to know what Sarah Vars are strains of the disease have been found in the sea lines. I know the dog leftover axion only protects against four the NC lions strain as Pomona, and I believe that is one of the strings it's also in the dog vaccine as well. But but but dogs get Phosa, which is a different strain of of leptospire. There's I believe there's a couple of hundred different strains around the world. Provocative question by he says, why are these animals being rescued doesn't that interfere with natural selection as well as decreasing the percentage of the population that has a more natural resistance to this type of infection. Well, there's a couple of reasons one is that we, you know, these animals are suffering and pain. We we don't wanna leave them on the beach to suffer. And we want to rescue them bring in and help the ones that we can in our facility in the Wednesday. Can't we want help relieve their pain? The other one is is that we were able to take a potentially infectious animal off the beach. So that there's less exposure to humans and dogs. You know, if these animals are left out there for long periods of time there is more risk to the humans and dog population. And on the beaches, the may also be taking our winning idea. Yeah. Actual selects. Yeah. And and it does I mean, the the the biologists have study these pipelines. Do see that this when there's large outbreaks like this and this ceiling population, there is a decrease in the overall population for short period of time, we go to more of your calls. Let's go next to you. Rub. You're on the air. Thank you. Yes. A two part question about dogs. Again. One is our dogs that stay within city limits less at risk. Even though my dog is a puddle drinker, but we don't go to the beach, and the other is I had heard that there was some we used to get the vaccine all the time. And she never had a problem that I'd heard stories about the bad side effects from the vaccine for dogs. Sean there I practiced in small animal medicine for a while before I started doing remorseful time. And there is always a concern about some of the the reactions to vaccines individual Peskine. How that's always something that you should talk to your veterinarian about about the risks to your Pat and people who are just in opposition vaccines, and the likelihood of having a negative reaction to the vaccine I took my dogs out and went into the woods and height and was around lots of other wildlife, and that does and so I gave my dog leptospirosis vaccine. And I think the caller and go to another caller, and that's Rene who's joining us from alpine. Welcome. Hi, thank you. Yeah. I'm awhile is pal adjusts and leptospirosis is nothing new tresslerlaw animals, but I'm surprised to hear it in the sea lions. So one side. I was wondering was given. We know how much they have to deal with pollutants and other things do you think that you're seeing some animals populations starting out with the compromised immune systems, making them making it just that much harder for them to fight disease? It's like this when it come along. That is definitely a possibility that we've we've discussed in having thoroughly investigated, but we have seen a similar type of scenario with sea lions with cancer. We see a large number of sea lines with your general carcinomas and the ones with cancer do tend to have higher levels of pollutants in which are probably modulating their immune system. And and you know, being a co factor in the development of that cancer. And it's quite possible that the that the animals that we're seeing with the severe disease also have some type of mutant suppression as well. Thank you Rene for the call, and we are talking been talking with Dr Shawn Johnson, director of veterinary science with the marine mammal center and trying to get another caller to on here from Sibusiso Kerry, you're on. Hi, keri. One statement one statement. Working plastics and kept from them. We've kind of done what Michael section question. What? Still young. Just going to do with the population now. Yeah, you're kind of breaking up on the call Shawn Johnson. So I think the question is what what's going to do to the overall population? I think that you know, that we're seeing two hundred animals, there's probably a lot more animals in the wild that are dying from this than we will. But we know that animals can't survive without treatment. There will be a we've seen on Pratt past outbreaks it there is a small decline in the overall population. But there are nearly three hundred thousand sea lions on the west coast. So so the small outbreak probably won't have any long lasting effects. Well, we'll continue to monitor this, Sean. Thanks for all your good work. And thanks for joining us this morning. Appreciate your being here. Texas. Shawn Johnson directs veterinary science with the marine mammal center.
