Dog dies in Wantage, Oxford of suspected Alabama Rot

Today Stephanie Presdee added a comment to this site and on Facebook re-posting from Medivet Wantage yesterday:

“We are saddened to share that we have seen a confirmed case of Alabama Rot at our [Medivet Wantage] practice this week. Charlie initially presented with a non-healing wound on his foot, then developed ulcers on his tongue, and became inappetent and lethargic. Despite a week of intensive treatment, Charlie’s condition continued to deteriorate, and today his owners took the difficult and brave decision to put him to sleep. We have been made aware of a suspected second case in the area this week at another practice, so we urge all dog owners to be vigilant and monitor their pets closely for any of the symptoms listed in the blog. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01235 770 227.” Medivet Wantage 31/3/2017

Lesley Vernon said:

“Charlie had never been to the New Forest and had only been walked around the Wantage area. He was only 11 months old.”

I have added this case to the ‘Suspected’ category of our All cases map until Anderson Moores officially ‘confirm’ the case in a few weeks.
