This is Mr Black. He was caught this evening by Wirral Animal Welfare just off West Vale in Little Neston. As we are available 24/7 they could call us once he was caught. He is now all safe and warm in our cat unit and once settled he will tomorrow undergo a full health check, parasite treatment and repair of his poorly leg.
** SALE DOG WITH ALABAMA ROT TREATED IN HESWALL **
Last week Richard and the team had to treat Basil, a 5 year old Greyhound who was suffering from Alabama Rot.
At lunch time on Wednesday Basil developed a slight limp. By early evening he was collapsed and in real trouble. He had the classical signs of sores and swellings on his skin and legs as well as mini bleeds under the skin.
His owners were school friends of vet Richard and called us here at Sanderson Vet. They immediately drove from Sale in Manchester to benefit from our expertise and 24 hour care, whilst we contacted Anderson Moores specialists who were able to help us formulate Basil's treatment plan from their extensive experience.
He was rushed into the isolation unit in the clinic and by 7pm he was in intensive care. Extensive blood work was performed showing changes to his red cells and platelets. We continued to support his kidneys and by the weekend he was getting back to his mischievous self and even plotting his escape! As an ex racing greyhound Basil didn't like been in a cage so took over the whole isolation unit to himself!
Basil has made a really encouraging recovery and continues to improve at home where his devoted parents are spoiling him rotten whilst he recovers. We are still pending repeat blood tests and are not out of the woods yet but so far it appears Basil will make a recovery thanks to his owners quick reactions to noticing the skin lesions.
Alabama Rot is a disease of unknown cause, causing skin lesions and often causing kidney injury. It is often difficult to distinguish and if you have any concerns please contact your vet as prompt commencement of 24 hour care may prove pivotal. As very few vets have ever seen a case and 24 hour care is needed, referral to a specialist facility may be recommended.
Please be aware of any skin lesions on your pet and ensure you wash off any woodland mud from your pet after a walk. Vigilance is key with over 150 cases seen in the U.K. since 2012 and over 30 already in 2018.

Misty has had a tough few weeks. After been handed over to Wirral Animal Welfare she found a new home where she is well loved by a devoted Mum and has a new sister!
Unfortunately a bad week started with getting bitten in the park and as she was recovering she developed a pyometra.
A pyometra is a life threatening infection in the uterus. Fortunately at Sanderson Vet we are available 24-7 and were able to perform emergency surgery today at our state of the art operating theatre in Heswall. This is Misty post-op making a recovery whilst doing her best to impersonate ET, following surgery with Principal Surgeon Richard.
Did you know that Richard is one of the few vets in the country who is a certificate holder in small animal practice meaning he has completed further study to be better equipped to deal with emergencies like this.
Animals don't always get sick between 9-5 so we believe we should be there 24-7 for our clients and their pets.
