As you will all remember, there were dogs dying after walking in the New Forest and possibly other areas of the country.
A lot of research has been undertaken both in this country and America. It has been given out that the name of the mystery illness is Alabama Rot. It was first seen in Greyhounds in America.
The cause still isn't actually known, it happens after heavy rainfall and although the majority of cases have been in the New Forest, it isn't confined to this area.
Please read the following link and keep it at the back of your mind as it could be the difference between life and death for your dog.

Thank you for posting this. I heard about this on the radio today. Very frightening....hopefully they will discover more about this & how to "avoid".

I didn't realise there had been a case in Cornwall. I will now be on the lookout for the symptoms.
