On 21st April 2017, Anderson Moores Vet Specialists advised:
“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)*, Exminster (Devon), Evesham (Worcestershire) and Hallow (Worcestershire). This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 98 since 2012 with 15 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.”
As Anderson Moores said, “this brings the total number of confirmed cases to 98 since 2012 with 15 in 2017”. In addition to the confirmed cases, AlabamaRot.co.uk have recorded 34 suspected cases, 22 unconfirmed cases and 58 dog walk locations – see the All AlabamaRot.co.uk Cases map.
