ALABAMA ROT IS AN EVER PRESENT THREAT TO OUR DOGS. PLEASE BE AWARE
Sadly we have to announce that more cases of Alabama Rot have been confirmed by veterinary specialist referral centre, Anderson Moores.
The cases confirmed so far this year are from Dublin, Penkhull in Staffordshire, Bearwood, West Chelborough and Ensbury Park in Dorset, Cullompton in Devon, Stalybridge in Greater Manchester, Crewe in Cheshire, Caldicot in Monmouthshire, Claverdon in Warwickshire and Malvern in Worcestershire.
A simple example can be the way dogs seek and eat grass to purge their stomachs when they are feeling queasy or off colour. Years ago I watched one of my horses going around the perimeter of his field picking and eating blackberries which I discovered were helpful in treating diarrhoea. We also had a westie that asked to go into the garden to eat a Lungwort plant. At first we found this behaviour bizarre until we realised that herbalists use the plant to treat chronic chest infections and coughs - Daisy suffered from breathing problems!
A fascinating subject, why not investigate Zoopharmacognosy for yourselves?
