“Unfortunately, we have to confirm a further ten cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (often termed CRGV or Alabama Rot). The cases were from Chippenham (Wiltshire), Taunton (Somerset), Westhoughton (G.Manchester), Chulmleigh (Devon), Lydney (Gloucestershire), Tonypandy (Rhondda Cynon Taf), Longhope (Gloucestershire), Salford (G.Manchester), South Molton (Devon) and Brecon (Powys).”
This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 132 since 2012, with 12 cases in 2018. We continue to advise owners to be vigilant and to seek advice from their local vet if their dog develops unexplained skin lesions/sores.
