Deathly pet disease: the Alabama Rot can kill your pet. Be ready to discover the signs and heal it by time!
The Alabama Rot is one of the last deathly pet disease that is appearing into the United Kingdom. This kind of dog disease, that literally eats the flesh of the pet, is now feared to be about to spread in the country.
Deathly pet disease: what is Alabama Rot and how to heal it?
The real name of this deathly pet disease is cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV), and it has been diagnosed for the first time in the USA, and after that it went into UK.
It causes damages and lesions on the skin and occasionally in the mouth, and some dogs can develop a life-threatening kidney failure.
This disease is fatal in 90% of the cases…9 on 10 dogs infected die at the end; dogs of any dog breed, age or sex can be subject to this deathly pet disease.
Alabama Rot causes tiny blood clots in the blood vessels, that become blocked. This lead to many damages of the affected tissue, that looks like eaten.
Therefore, it can cause organ disfunction, kidney failure and all ulcerations in the skin. If not treated, it can lead to a raging severe fever and to the death of the animal.
The course of this disease is actually 1 to 9 days. In those days dogs develop vomit, lack of appetite or unusual tiredness.
Unfortunately the cause still isn’t known, many scientists think that it may depend on a bug, that multiplies on warm waters like natural pools or still puddles, and it can infect the dog while it’s walking with its owner on woodland or on forest areas.
To heal it, or at least to try, the owner have to clean and wash the dog if the animal has been in contact with wild water or mud. A vaccine for this disease is on his way but still has to be developed. Watch always out for anything that your dog could chew, eat or enter in contact with during your walks!
