What are the symptoms of Alabama Rot?
The first signs that your dog may have contracted Alabama Rot are noticeable lesions and ulcers on their skin, most commonly on the paws and lower legs. They can also form on the nose, mouth or tongue. These tend to appear as red patches or open sores.
Some dogs will go on to develop kidney problems, which could eventually lead to renal failure. Symptoms to watch out for include:
- unusual tiredness
- lack of appetite
- increased thirst
- decreased urination.
These symptoms typically occur 1-9 days after the appearance of skin lesions.
If you notice any of these signs and you’re concerned your dog may have Alabama Rot, contact your vet as soon as possible.
