4 cases of Alabama Rot in Maplehurst (W.Sussex), Farnborough (Hampshire), Stockport (G.Manchester) and Exeter (Devon). 

Anderson Moores Vet Specialists advised on 6th June 2018:

“Unfortunately, we have to confirm a further 4 cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (often termed CRGV and sometimes known as Alabama Rot). The cases were from Maplehurst (W.Sussex), Farnborough (Hampshire), Stockport (G.Manchester) and Exeter (Devon). This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 166 since 2012, with 43 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. Although an environmental trigger for this disease is possible, this has not been proven.

For help recognising some of the signs and to see a map of confirmed cases, please visit www.vets4pets.com/stop-alabama-rot/. Cases have most often been identified between October and May so hopefully very few if any additional cases will be recognised over the coming months.”

  1. My Husband, our dog Sasha and I will no longer be holidaying in England due to the Alabama Rot new cases throughout the Country reported today. Think very carefully before booking your holidays and keep up to date with news.
    There are plenty of lovely “Cottages ” for rent in Scotland that you can take your Pets to.
