Unfortunately, further cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV) have been reported recently, taking the total number of confirmed cases since 2012 to 98.
Fifteen cases have been confirmed since the start of 2017, 3 of which are from Dorset. Cases of CRGV have also been identified in other counties across the whole of the UK.
CRGV appears to have no age or sex predilection; however, to date the most commonly affected breeds are Labradors, English Springer Spaniels and Whippets.
The cause of CRGV still remains unknown although research is ongoing.
To help keep you informed of any developments surrounding CRGV, we will continue to provide regular updates on our Facebook page.
If you are concerned that a case you have been presented with may be suffering from CRGV, please contact Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists on 01962 767920.
