Dog owners are being warned to look out for Alabama Rot symptoms after a dog reportedly died from the horrible infection this weekend.

The owners took to Facebook to warn others after the death of their beloved 14-year-old dog.

Posting in Atherton Residents Association the woman said: “Absolutely heartbroken today, my daughter’s 14 yr dog Mia died today from Alabama Rot so just warning all you dog walkers take care this horrible infection is back again.”

The infection called CRGV, but more commonly known as Alabama Rot, can lead to a dog’s flesh rotting on the skin and occasionally the mouth.

It has only been recently diagnosed in the UK and according to Vets4Pets, a national vet chain.

Vets4Pets have an online tool that allows you to search for cases of Alabama Rot by postcode.

The website track incidences of the fatal dog disease across the country in a bid to alert pet owners.

Whilst causes for the horrible infection are unknown, most recorded incidents in the UK have taken place between November and May.

If owners see their dog licking any skin lesions, ulcers or sores, they are advised to take them to a vet straight away.
