Tetanus in dogs

Tetanus is a potentially life-threatening disease in many animals. Fortunately, it’s an uncommon disease in dogs as most are fairly resistant to tetanus. However, some dogs may need intensive care if they have a severe form of the disease and early veterinary treatment is important for a successful recovery.
