Alabama Rot

What is Alabama rot?

Alabama rot is a disease that damages blood vessels within a dog’s skin and kidneys. It causes blood to clot, which damages the kidneys lining and tissues.

This leads to ulcers on the skin and sadly causes kidney failure, which can be fatal.

Alabama rot’s full scientific name is cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV), and was first identified in America during the 1980’s.
