We are sad to report that a dog owned by Jackie O’Leary has died in Axminster Devon on 29th November 2016 of confirmed Alabama Rot.
Coombefield Vets in Axminster Devon reported the case on 8th December 2016.
Jackie contacted AlabamaRot.co.uk kindly offering to provide further information:
My dog was a 6 year old male lurcher called Buzz. We always walked at Trinity Hill just outside Axminster, Devon. It is an area of forestry land attached to a nature reserve on OS Explorer map 166 grid ref SY308 958, closest postcode EX13 5SZ. It is very popular with local dog walkers.The last walk we did there was 22nd November the day after very heavy rainfall in the area. I have read somewhere that there may be a correlation? My vets are Coombefield Vets, Axminster, Devon. I have another lurcher who did exactly the same walks and she has been unaffected.
