This post reports the closure of AlabamaRot.co.uk maps and donations. So now, Vets4Pets will host the confirmed Alabama Rot map and the Alabama Rot Research Fund will collect donations.
Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialist yesterday advised that:
“Unfortunately, we have to confirm another four cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (often termed CRGV or Alabama Rot). The cases* are from Radcliffe (Greater Manchester), West Chiltington (West Sussex), North Chailey (East Sussex) and Cullompton (Devon).
This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 102 since 2012 with 19 in 2017. Most confirmed cases have been seen between October and April so the hope would be that confirmed case numbers will now reduce. We would, however, continue to advise owners to be vigilant and to seek advice from their local vet if their dog develops unexplained skin lesions/sores.”
* AlabamaRot.co.uk list these cases and all others on our Alabama Rot Confirmed and All cases maps. As we get further information about the walks taken by these dogs and other information, we will update the maps.
