Alabama Rot cases in Berkshire, Greater Manchester, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Devon and Lancashire

Anderson Moores advise (30th November 2017):

“Unfortunately, we have to confirm another six cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (often termed CRGV or Alabama Rot). The cases are from Frilsham (Berkshire), Little Lever, Bolton (Greater Manchester), Rugby (Warwickshire), Cannock (Staffordshire), Torquay (Devon) and Chorley (Lancashire).

This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 109 since 2012 with 26 in 2017. Most confirmed cases have been seen between October and April. We would continue to advise owners to be vigilant and to seek advice from their local vet if their dog develops unexplained skin lesions/sores.
