Unfortunately, we have to confirm two further cases of Alabama Rot, also known as CRGV, for this season. These cases were from Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Bridgnorth (Shropshire). The UK has now seen 294 confirmed cases in total, with 4 cases in 2023. This disease is still rare, so we’re advising dog owners to remain calm but vigilant and seek advice from their local vet if their dog develops unexplained skin lesions.
Further information and a map of confirmed cases can be found on the Alabama Rot website
