Alabama Rot - Very very serious Vote for this post

Outbreak in UK is similar to Alabama Rot and leads to kidney disease very rapidly! Cause is currently unknown.

Quote:  "“The problem with this disease is that once skin wounds appear on the lower legs (or face or tongue, can be other areas too) it’s only days before kidney failure begins."  - DAYS!

CRGV  or Cutaneous and Renal Glomerular Vasculopathy 

I suggest watching this video and keep an eye for any similar lesions.  Who knows if this could also be in America or Canada - be prepared!! And if you see anything like this get your dog to the vet ASAP!!!!

The video at the link below is the same but I can't find any way to turn on the audio.  

There is a lot of info, photos and links on this page.  Right at the bottom are maps for cases in the Isles, including Dublin Ireland.

Oh my Theo, thank you for sharing this information.  Never heard of this but will definitely be on the outlook for these lesions.  I hope researchers can figure this out so it can be prevented and treated successfully.  Louise, Caesar and Angel Murphy
