Please note: the dog disease ‘Alabama Rot’ has been recently reported in the area (please see below).
As you may know, the cause of the disease is still unknown and it’s caught predominantly during the winter months. This is a very serious issue as the fatality rate upon contracting it is around 80% for dogs. The positive is that it is still very rare but with cases in 2017 over doubling compared to the previous year, dog owners need to be made aware of the precautions, signs and available treatments.
Vet Ashley Gray from Vetsure has recently put together a complete 2018 guide with the latest statistics, aimed at informing the public of the disease. The guide is below (along with a section on Lyme Disease, too) should you wish to view it.
