Alabama Rot 22:21 - Jan 23 with 1349 viewsCountyJim

Not sure if it's hit down west at all but a local dog to us has unfortunately had to be put to sleep after picking up this terrible thing

Keep an eye on your dog's paws everyone

My mate lost he cracking springer spaniel from Alabama rot (Somerset)
Not sure if you are correct as to how it is contracted.

The cause of Alabama rot is not yet known. There is some anecdotal evidence to suggest it could be picked up by pets drinking in the outdoors, although this has not been proven. It's also suspected the disease spreads from muddy and wooded areas as many of its victims were diagnosed after being walked in woods.

There were a few last year in my area.

Afaik its contracted through lesions on the dogs legs.

As long as they dont lesions and you wash them thoroughly after the walk they should be ok.

The first sign of Alabama Rot is lesions - the dog doesn’t need lesions to contract it. They have no idea how it’s contracted or why - they just know that there appears to be a link to mud, and particularly mud in woods, and the disease.

Washing the mud away straight after a walk is definitely what is advised though.

Thankfully cases last year were quite a bit down on previous years. Bloody awful thing.

Think the best course of action for now is keep your dog to pavements or beach

Just a heads up for all you dog lovers.

Llantrisant Town Trust is warning dog owners of the potential dangers involved in walking their animals on Llantrisant Common.

Health Department and Natural Resources Wales we can confirm several cases of Alabama Rot amongst dogs who have visited the Common recently.

There is an idea that it could be an Escherichia coli (E.coli) pathotype related to the kidney problems as a number of E. coli toxins act on the kidney (including renal failure in human O157:H7) cases. However, there is inconsistent isolation from lesions and affected dogs. I suspect it is infectious, but could be syndromic-perhaps involving several pathogens. Very nasty, but still pretty rare.

I don't claim to be an expert but I've read that the condition causes the lesions not the other way around.

I stand to be corrected but the truth of the matter is that the experts are currently baffled by the disease and what causes it.

It has spread all over South Wales though fortunately not in massive numbers of cases yet.
