IT is feared at least 20 dogs have died in this country of so-called Alabama Rot.

Included in that total are 12 from the New Forest and now one in Christchurch, Dorset.

So far, it appears not a lot has been done to address the problem.

A group of dog lovers has responded to the situation by setting up a fund to carry out more crucial research in this area.

The Echo welcomes any initiative which can provide answers to what seems to be a growing issue for dog owners in the region.

I can't understand what the problem is in identifying the toxin.
Presumably they have a test to confirm if it is Alabama rot or not.
Why has this not been done so far and confirmed yes or no?
The reports are "suspected Alabama rot"
