Alabama Rot Update
Is it near me?
There have been 21 cases within a 20 mile radius of Manchester over the past few years. The most recent of which have been from within the Sale area. An on line map is available to check for confirmed cases across the UK.
How can I prevent my dog from getting it?
It appears that confirmed cases had recently been walked in muddy areas so, although no known cause has been found yet, we strongly advise washing your dog’s off after being walked in muddy woodland areas.
What should you do if you’re worried?
Please contact us immediately and bring your pet in to see us.
Although there is no cure, and currently no clear test that we can use to confirm the diagnosis, Alabama rot can be fatal and so if we suspect it we will act quickly. Your pet will need blood tests and to be kept at the practise for supportive care and close monitoring.
