CRGV (Alabama Rot)

  Back

29/03/2017



There has been a confirmed case of CRGV (Alabama Rot) in the area in the last few weeks. This disease is extremely rare but often fatal.

Most cases start with sores and swelling, normally on the paws or lower legs, but they can be anywhere on the body or face. The majority of skin problems are not caused by CRGV, however if you are concerned please contact your vet.

The cause of this disease is currently unknown so it is difficult to give specific advice regarding prevention. You may wish to bathe your dog's legs and face if they get muddy following a walk, however it is not known if this has any benefit in preventing the disease.
