Eastnor Castle said in a statement:


Confirmed case – 22.03.21

Today it has been confirmed by a local vet that a dog has died after contracting Alabama Rot after walking in Eastnor Deer Park.

We have been informed that there are no other cases pending, so it seems this was an isolated incident.

Alabama Rot is an extremely rare disease with only 271 cases reported in the whole of the UK since 2012. It is not known how the disease is contracted but it may be linked to mud. It is thought that washing your dog off after a muddy walk may help, as may sticking to the Park roads and avoiding wet areas.

More information can be found on the Anderson Moores Vets website who specialise in Alabama Rot.
