Laboratory testing is essential for the diagnosis, however, it is complicated due to the need to discriminate between Leptospira infection in animals with clinical disease from leptospiral specific antibody responses in maintenance hosts, or in animals with subclinical infection.

Historically, leptospirosis was recognised as a disease of dogs before it was know in any other animal species, including humans Faine It has been suggested that a MAT titre of 1: Leptospires are susceptible to UV radiation, desiccation and routine disinfectants Sykes et al Prevalence leptospirksis feline leptospirosis: J Am Vet Med Assoc Seroprevalence and risk factors associated with leptospirosis in dogs.
