Glossop, Derbyshire: dog dies from suspected case of Alabama Rot

Zoe Stafford reports that her pet dog ‘Branston’ died from suspected Alabama Rot in February 2017.

Victoria Pets in Glossop [TBC this Victoria vets], say it is highly likely that Alabama Rot was the cause. [Branston was cremated and no tissue samples were taken for confirmation of Alabama Rot by Anderson Moores].

A week before the lesions were spotted, Branston had been walked in the Hobson Moor/Hollingworth Hall Moor near Stalybridge area.

  1. Thank you to all veterinary clinics and owners for the reporting of confirmed and suspect cases. Without this information im sure more dogs would suffer. We take our dogs around the uk in our caravan on Holiday so avoiding areas where cases have been reported is one way we can try to avoid this awful disease. My condolences to all owners who have lost their beloved dogs in this way.
