BSAVA Draws Attention to Rise in Alabama Rot Cases

Posted 1 year ago

With the recent reporting of six Alabama Rot cases in the UK, the BSAVA has urged its members to refresh their knowledge of the condition. Their latest online post states that “a range of dog breeds in many areas across the UK have been identified showing signs of the disease with many of the cases occurring between November and June. Vets are advised to consider the disease if presented with a dog showing compatible clinical signs of skin lesions (including superficial erosion through to full thickness ulceration) along with some or all of the following – lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, pyrexia and AKI.”
