Unfortunately, we have to confirm a further 4 cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (often termed CRGV and sometimes known as Alabama Rot). The cases were from Maplehurst (W.Sussex), Farnborough (Hampshire), Stockport (Cheshire) and Exeter (Devon)
This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 166 since 2012, with 43 cases in 2018.
We continue to advise owners to be vigilant and to seek advice from their local vet if their dog develops unexplained skin lesions/sores. Although an environmental trigger for this disease is possible, this has not been proven.
