Dog owners across Lincolnshire are being urged to take extra precautions when out walking their pets this spring and summer, to help prevent the spread of the deadly disease, Alabama Rot.

The mysterious illness, which first appeared in the late 1980s affecting greyhounds in America, has spread to at least 18 counties in England, with 46 cases confirmed since December 2013 – an increase of 460 per cent compared to the period from November 2012 to November 2013*.

Now Vets4Pets has launched an interactive guide to provide dog owners with information on the disease, including confirmed locations and tips on how to reduce the risk of dogs becoming infected - www.vets4pets.com/stop-alabama-rot/
