Alabama Rot

Looks like Alabama Rot is raising it”s ugly head again. All dog owners need to be alert to the threat it causes to your lovely dog.   Last night on South Today was a classic case. I am a bit OTT with my two dogs. After their walk they have the paws washed with the outside tap.   Then I have a bowl with a Hibiscrub/water mix and clean the feet,then rinse. Two dogs ,5 minutes. Job done. The source of this killer disease is not yet known but the theory is damp,dirty water/mud etc. all prevalent in this area ,especially in the forest, and more wet weather forecast.   Please, please look after your dog and watch out for the signs of sores, cuts, etc. If in doubt call your vet.  Better safe than the alternative.
