    Anderson Moores Vet Specialists say:

    “How do I stop my dog from getting CRGV?

    Unfortunately, as the cause is currently unknown, it is very difficult to give specific advice about prevention. You may wish to consider bathing any area of your dog which becomes wet or muddy on a walk; however, at this stage, we do not know if this is necessary or of any benefit.”

    Few Alabama Rot cases have been reported where a dog was walked exclusively on beaches.

    Dogmother, thanks for your post. I’m not aware that Porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS) has been considered in the development of Alabama Rot.

    I note the symptoms of skin lesions and kidney disease.

    I will post your comment to alabamarot.co.uk and will seek advice from some of my veterinary contacts.

    Hello Kevin,

    So so sorry to hear of your dog dying from suspected Alabama Rot. Which veterinary hospital confirmed his suspected diagnosis?

    If you can provide details of where he walked, up to a month before contracting Alabama Rot, I’ll add this to the map. Send the info to chris.street@alabamarot.co.uk

    Many thanks.

    I regret that nobody systematically goes to areas in which a dog with confirmed Alabama Rot was walked, to take soil and plant samples etc.

    It is up to the vet to voluntarily inform Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists of case details (off/on lead, breed etc).

    AlabamaRot.co.uk has collated details of cases, such as they are known, in our confirmed and all cases maps:

    Hi jules666,

    If your vet thinks it might be CRGV/Alabama Rot, has your vet contacted Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists?

    Dear Dr Waterfield,
    Many thanks for posting info about the insect pathogenic bacterium Photorhabdus asymbiotica. Infection in humans in local geographic clusters occurring at specific times of the year, causing disease symptoms such as skin lesions on the hand or foot, then spreading throughout the body – does sound very similar to Alabama Rot in dogs.

    I will contact you to discuss further.

    There are 8.5 million dogs in the UK. With 98 confirmed cases over 4 years, Alabama Rot is still a rare disease. But if it happened to your dog…

    Jessica Worthington’s dog Pippa died. Her other dog Molly, who also got skin lesions, and had been walked in the same area, survived. See May 10th 2017 BBC report.
