• These data indicate that IL-8 is an important neutrophil chemoattractant in both early and well-developed lesions of pneumonic pasteurellosis, but that mediators with actions redundant to those of IL-8 must also be present at these times. (usask.ca)
  • Pre-treatment of pneumonic BAL fluid samples with a neutralizing antibody to IL-8, compared to pretreatment with a control antibody, reduced the 'in vitro' neutrophil chemotactic activity significantly, by 15-63% in 9/10 samples. (usask.ca)
  • Pneumonic problems occurred more in dairies that housed their calves inside a building, than those using exterior calf hutches reporting the least mortality rate from pneumonia. (medigraphic.com)
  • Ewes may be vaccinated during pregnancy as an aid in the control of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, tetanus and pasteurellosis in their lambs provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 1-2 days of life. (viovet.co.uk)
  • Although the vaccine may be safely used in pregnant ewes as an aid in the control of pulpy kidney, tetanus and pasteurellosis in their lambs, the vaccine contains no lamb dysentery component and therefore control of this important disease cannot be achieved by its use. (viovet.co.uk)
  • Although not recommended, ewes may be vaccinated during pregnancy as an aid in the control of pulpy kidney, tetanus and pasteurellosis in their lambs provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 1-2 days of life. (viovet.co.uk)
  • The vaccine may be used in pregnant ewes as an aid in the control of pasteurellosis in their lambs provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 1-2 days of life. (hyperdrug.co.uk)
  • In adult breeding ewes these yearly booster injections should be given during the pre-lambing period, 4-6 weeks pre-lambing, as an aid in the control of pasteurellosis in their lambs. (hyperdrug.co.uk)
  • Pasteurellosis is an infectious disease caused byPasteurella multocida, a Gram-negative coccobacillus .The disease is characterized by congestion and haemorrhage of young skin. (marphavet.com)
  • Based on the information obtained from the districts veterinary services large and small ruminant pasteurellosis is one of the major health problems and the vaccination is done by purchasing the recommended vaccine from the National Veterinary Institute (NVI) which is developed from only P. multocida type A, resulting poor vaccine efficacy.

  • Pneumonic pigs often lose condition rapidly as the energy needed to gain air is considerable, food intake has fallen drastically and the damage to the lungs leads to increased load on the heart, gradual heart failure and congestion (blue/purple colour) of the extremities. (pigprogress.net)
