VHD2 in Rabbits
We have had a confirmed outbreak of VHD2 in rabbits please click the link here for information about this disease.
Alabama Rot has been reported all over the UK since November 2012.
Cases are as yet sporadic and few.
The disease is fatal in 9 out of 10 dogs. The disease causes lesions on the skin especially on the lower limbs and sometimes in the mouth which looks like stings or sore.
Some dogs develop fatal renal failure caused by damage to the kidneys blood vessels.
The cause is currently unknown but is being investigated at Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists.
In this area cases have been reported in Lydiard Park and also Savernake Forest as well as The New Forest. It is best to avoid dog walking in these areas especially wooded and wet areas until more is known about this fatal disease.
Washing legs and feet after a walk in woodland areas may be useful.
There appears to be Winter/Spring seasonality.
Please see Alabamarot.co.uk for more information or The Anderson Moores website.
If you are concerned about any lesion on your dog’s skin please make an appointment to see us as soon as possible.
