Cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV), which is sometimes referred to as Alabama Rot, first emerged in the UK in 2012. The Animal and Plant Health Agency has been in touch from the start with the private veterinary group investigating the syndrome. While CRGV remains rare in the UK, we are now working with this vet group to commission research to improve our understanding. Forestry England’s advice on dog health https://www.forestryengland.uk/dog-health includes a link to private veterinary advice on CRGV and other organisations such as the Kennel Club also provide advice.
