I'm wondering whether they've been frosted - we've had some very low night temperatures recently - and yet the basil looks to be ok and I'd have thought that would have suffered from frost too.

It may well be over-watering coupled with low temperatures - not many plants like having their roots cold and wet at the same time.

By the way, is that up against your house wall - doesn't it cause damp problems indoors?

Good luck ...

Dd - sorry to hear about Shadow - you must be so worried - I don't know what to suggest - we used to keep sheep and our dogs never troubled them because the horned ram terrified them (he was a nasty piece of work - he broke my thumb) - it was real Aversion Therapy in action.  Can a local dog trainer offer any advice?

The RHS link also gives a list of the garden plants that are most susceptible to the contamination, so you could start by using the manure you already have on areas where you grow plants that are less susceptible
