The cause of Alabama Rot in dogs is still unknown. Alabama Rot is 90% fatal in dogs. An environmental factor could trigger Alabama Rot.
David Walker at Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists said:
“we do not know for certain if there is an environmental trigger for CRGV. Indeed, if there is an environmental trigger we do not know when, in relation to the development of clinical signs, this occurs (e.g. environmental exposure could occur one day, one week, or one month before clinical signs develop)” (29th January 2015)
