Dog dies of suspected Alabama Rot. Walked in Woburn woodlands.

Charlie Helen P on Facebook reports how her dog ‘Max’ died of suspected Alabama Rot. During the month before his death, he had only been walked in woodlands around Woburn in Bedfordshire.

Ten days before this death Max developed spots/lesions on his chest. He lost his appetite, energy and enthusiasm (severe lethargy). Max was violently sick and died after acute renal failure.

Max had no post mortem so his case cannot be ‘confirmed’ by the vet as being Alabama Rot.

The ‘All cases’ map has been updated with his suspected case in Woburn. The map has further details of the two vet practices (Heath & Reach Vets and Vets Now in Luton) that saw Max.
