“As requested by David Walker of Anderson Moores, in March 2014 I researched peer reviewed articles on Thrombotic Microangiopathy (HUS, aHUS and TTP) in humans. I found 130 articles that might be relevant to the cause of Alabama Rot.”

In March 2015 David Walker at Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists published peer reviewed research in Veterinary Record.

  1. Wondering why so little cases of Alabama Rot in scotland and North Wales both high rainfall areas.
    Also Farm dogs.Both muddy and wet.
    Suggestions are that it linked to muddy wet areas,and
    to wash dogs feet.

  2. Alabama rot reaserch links mud/ water as a suggestion of areas to be careful.
    However, i would like to ask or make an observation:-
    1) very low cases in Scotland, no case in North wales – high rainfall area
    2) Has there been any cases in farm dogs – always in Mud and staggnet water.

  3. Due to the apparent increase in cases of Alabama rot during the autumn and winter, the possible link to something found in fish and the fact that affected dogs appear to have walked in wet muddy areas in relatively close proximity to water sources; has any research been done into a possible link with migratory water birds that spend the winter in the uk?

  4. I live in Claverdon Warwickshire,which has had a case of Alabama rot.I have recently noticed with the wetter weather ,strange slime/spores in grass, both around my fields and around Claverdon.On googling images I found that it is called slime mold which grows in wetter weatger conditions .I just wondered if this had ever been looked into as a possibleblink with Alabama rot?
