Thank you, we have an appointment this afternoon for some more tests and fluids to make sure he will be OK this weekend, I will ask them. I believe they will also inform of the severity of the infection and the strains? Thanks again.Definitely call your primary care physician's office, speak with his or her nurse, and ask her to call you back with guidance later today.
I would buy a box of disposable latex gloves at Costco or Sams to use instead of reusable rubber gloves. Practice removing gloves with a clean pair (pinch up near the wrist and then pulling so that they fold inside out as you pull them off), have a plastic bag at the ready to put them in, knot the top of the bag, and put it in the trash outside.
A can of old-fashioned Lysol spray or the newer, excellent Seventh Generation version of it is also worth having at the ready -- I keep a can by the door to spray the soles of my shoes when I come in from a yard where an infectious dog has been, and leave the shoes by the door for the spray to dry (this was something I learned from the rescue's vet clinic to avoid tracking germs in). Using 10% bleach solution is smart, but it ideally should be mixed up fresh before use and not stored for days at a time in a spray bottle. Pottying the pup on concrete will make it easier to disinfect with bleach.
Ask the vet whether veterinary chlorhexidene shampoo and wipes are appropriate to keep the pup clean and knock down any lepto clinging to it from urine splash-back -- I like the veterinary chlorhex shampoo because it's formulated for very frequent bathing (weekly or even 2x weekly) without drying out the skin and coat. We use it on dogs that are shedding staph bacteria to help reduce the chance of human transmission, so my instinct would be to use it on a dog with anything infectious -- but the vet will know if it's okay to do that. You can find it on Amazon, or buy it from the clinic if it's recommended.
