This is a newsfeed summarising some of the latest news about Alabama Rot
Vets are warning dog owners to look out for the signs of Alabama Rot, a disease that kills more than three quarters of the dogs it infects.
What is Alabama Rot?
Alabama Rot is more formally known as CRGV. Very little is known about the disease, which causes damage to blood vessels of the skin and kidney. Blood vessels become blocked by tiny clots, which can lead to ulcers or organ dysfunction.
What are the signs?
It is thought the disease is picked up through muddy paws, so washing your dog after a muddy walk is recommended. If you believe your dog is showing signs of Alabama Rot, go to the vet at the earliest opportunity
