Although still very rare Alabama Rot (CRGV) is now present in our area around Croydon and Surrey. Dog owners should make themselves aware of the symptoms of the disease and if you have any concerns then contact us immediately.
While there is no particular advice as to how to avoid the disease it is believed to be picked up via muddy paws and legs. So you may wish to wash off mud and clean your dog after a walk, although at present there is no scientific evidence that this will help.
Below are links to websites giving more detailed information and advice about the disease.
