“After losing our beloved dog Maggie to Alabama rot on 10th February 2017 [see Confirmed cases map] we want to try to help raise awareness and funds for more research into this awful disease so that hopefully very soon a cause, then cure might be found. If we reach the target Aaron will run it in fancy dress.”

If your dog gets skin lesions or other symptoms consult your vet, without delay. “Unexplained redness, sores or swelling of the skin (on the paws, legs, body, face, tongue or mouth) are often the first sign of this disease.” (AMVS, Feb 2016) After five years, we still don’t know what causes Alabama Rot. From analysis by AlabamaRot.co.uk, we do know that 90% of confirmed cases have been in the six months during Winter and Spring (December – May).
