Alabama Rot

Cutaneous and Renal Vasculopathy, better known as Alabama Rot, was first diagnosed in dogs in the UK in 2012. Since then 20-40 cases have been reported annually mainly in the autumn, winter and spring, and often associated with dogs being exercised in woodland.


Breeds or Genetics?

 

Recent investigations have shown that hounds and gun-dogs are more likely to be diagnosed with disease. It has been found to be rare in Terriers, GSD’s, and cross-breeds, and it has never been diagnosed in toy dogs.

 

Female dogs and neutered dogs were also found to be more likely to contract the disease. However, these findings need to be interpreted with caution. Is it genetic? Or is it just that these breeds are more likely to exercise in the typical woodland areas?

 

What to do?

 

We are still no further on with finding a cause, so we can give no definite advice on prevention, though it is thought that thorough cleaning of your dog’s paws is worth doing.
