Been their. I lost my very first dog 6 years ago. He was 16. It gutted me. I bought myself a pup soon after though. A completely different breed so I'd never be tempted to compare them. I love my little man. 

 

Hope you learn to remember her without the sadness soon. 


I'm remember her without sadness, but don't really have time to raise another dog for now.

That's good and if you ever are in the position where you do have enough time I'm sure you'll give another dog a great life.

Cross posting for dog owners. 

 

CRGV ("Alabama Rot")

There has been a lot of attention in the media recently about a mystery illness causing symptoms similar to Alabama Rot. The correct term for it is a bit of a mouthful – idiopathic cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV). Idiopathic meaning that the cause is unknown. 

What is CRGV 

It is a condition that causes acute kidney failure usually with concurrent skin wounds. Despite extensive testing the actual cause is still unknown. It causes similar symptoms to a disease called Alabama Rot, which is caused by a toxin released by E. coli bacteria. This has not been isolated in the cases in the UK. 

Where has it been reported 

There have been 22 confirmed cases since December 2012, and 10 of those in the last year. The first reports came out of the New Forest but it has also been confirmed in Surrey, Dorset, Yorkshire, Cornwall, Durham and Worcestershire. (most recently Northamptonshire) 

What should I look out for 

Affected dogs develop sores on their limbs usually below the elbow or knee. These can manifest as swollen lumps that ulcerate or skin wounds. Within 7 days dogs then start to vomit, lose their appetite and become tired. The kidney failure can be irreversible and lead to death. 

How is it diagnosed 

A presumtive diagnosis is made on clinical signs. A definitive diagnosis requires post-mortem examination of kidneys and skin and can take 4-6 weeks to be confirmed. 

What should I do if I’m worried about my dog 

If you are at all worried about your dog then please contact a vet as soon as possible. Should your dog be affected then early recognition and aggressive management of the condition is likely to lead to the best outcome. 

Advice about walking your dog 

As the actual cause or trigger of the disease is unknown it is very difficult to give specific advice on prevention. Some people advocate washing your dogs off after a walk in the forest but it is unknown if this makes a difference 

Important to remember 

Only a very small number of dogs have been affected by this disease in relationship to how many dogs get walked in the affected areas. Most causes of skin wounds and kidney failure are not caused by CRGV

I've got a cat from a rescue centre, she's a bit needy, still occasionally shits indoors, scratches the hell out of the stair carpet but she's so bonkers and loveable.

 

For some reason she's crazy about hairbands and plays with my daughter's all the time, there's always half a dozen scattered around the kitchen floor. She won't drink water from a bowl, only the kitchen tap and then she'll eat her dry cat food by lifting out one piece at a time on her paw and then eating it.

 

I call her "Thunder Paws" because every so often she'll just bolt from one part of the house to another for no reason absolutely thundering up the stairs. Cats are crazy.

Cat is answer to every question. :D

 

Yep.

Currently have two cats.

 

Our grey cat "Whisper" was an abandoned kitten who used to growl like a dog when fed and was scared of every sound.

These days she likes to lie behind my keyboard when I play WoT even with the speakers on :)

 

Our black and white cat "Daisy" was, hmm, "rescued" from nearby neighbours one winter a few years back when she started to camp on our doorstep every night. Despite us taking her back many times they kept leaving her out overnight in sub zero temperatures and snow.

So we decided to let her in, in she strolled, jumped on the settee, and went to sleep. Stayed ever since.

ps She refused to go outside without me or my wife with her for over a year, terrified of being shut out again....

pps. It took the neighbours six months to knock and ask about her. We told them to get lost :)

 

Never been a day in my life without cats around, and there never will be.

 

Have also had assorted Gerbils and Finches. (NO, not as food or pets for the cats !)

I had a rabbit called Louie once. Supposedly a lop-ear dwarf rabbit, he grew to the size of a giant rabbit (on lettuce and bark alone) by the time he died, at 10 years old a few months ago. Poor....little fella.
