Was at the beach today in San Francisco (more like bay section near the Golden Gate bridge). A lady told me she had to give specific vaccines to her dogs for them to go into the bay water because of certain known parasites. She couldn't remember the name, I'd guess it's leptospirosis or giardia...

Anyone know about this vaccine? Or the prevalence of the problem in northern california?

Why don't you ask your vet about it? I am sure he/she would know the risks for your area.
I asked my vet and he recommended the lepto vaccine yearly, which we have been doing for all our dogs. Our vet has seen cases of Lepto coming in.
