ABSTRACT Leptospira kirschneri is an agent causing leptospirosis in animals and humans. We report the draft genome sequence of Leptospira kirschneri serovar Mozdok type 2 strain Horse 112, comprising 485 contigs and having a genome size of 4,301,784 bp. This genome will facilitate studying important mechanisms for clinical outcomes. KEYWORDS Leptospira kirschneri; leptospirosis; zoonotic; disease; genome.
