  • Blood testing goats for CAE virus before moving them into a new herd will prevent the spread of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • They are bred to be larger than normal goats, and meet specific visual appearances, but these very characteristics are valuable genes to add to the commercial herd. (wikipedia.org)

  • This highly practical, concise handbook presents all aspects of goat medicine -- from initial assessment and examination to diagnosis, treatment and control of conditions. (worldcat.org)
  • meat
  • Sheep and goats are both small ruminants with cosmopolitan distributions due to their being kept historically and in modern times as grazers both individually and in herds in return for their production of milk, wool, and meat. (wikipedia.org)

  • At least five species of Herpesviridae - HSV-1 and HSV-2 (both of which can cause orolabial herpes and genital herpes), varicella zoster virus (the cause of chickenpox and shingles), Epstein-Barr virus (implicated in several diseases, including mononucleosis and some cancers), and cytomegalovirus - are extremely widespread among humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistant
  • Resistant animals may show only a mild form of the disease, which may be missed as only a few lesions are present, usually around the ears or the tail. (wikipedia.org)
  • adult

  • sheeppox
  • Sheeppox (or sheep pox, known as variola ovina in Latin, clavelée in French, Pockenseuche in German) is a highly contagious disease of sheep caused by a poxvirus different than the benign orf (or contagious ecthyma). (wikipedia.org)
  • Sheeppox virus (SPV) is the most severe of all the animal pox diseases and can result in some of the most significant economic consequences due to poor wool and leather quality. (wikipedia.org)
  • Goatpox is a similar disease of goats, caused by a virus antigenically distinct from sheeppox virus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sheeppox virus is approximately 150 kbp and shares 96% and 97% nucleotide identity with goatpox virus and lumpy skin disease virus, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been suggested that the lumpy skin disease virus vaccine is can also be used to prevent sheeppox. (wikipedia.org)
  • incidence
  • Reducing stressful circumstances or giving antibiotics preventively when stress cannot be avoided, will help reduce the severity and the incidence of the disease. (goatworld.com)

  • livestock
  • Earlier, in the early 2000s,scoping work under the DFID Animal Health Programme (AHP), identified the need for an organisation to promote the creation of a consortia to invest in research to produce livestock vaccines, diagnostics and other products for the control of tropical livestock diseases, which the private pharmaceutical sector was not funding at the time. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was funded through a £300,000 grant from DFID with the objective of establishing a global public-private partnership to develop new vaccines against diseases that inflict the livestock of poor people. (wikipedia.org)
  • Throughout GALVmed phase 1, the organisation had as its mission statement and strapline "protecting livestock, saving human life" (PLSHL).Known as the PLSHL project, protecting livestock reflected the predominant focus on preventive veterinary medicines, especially vaccines, while saving human life indicated that two of the four key diseases GALVmed was targeting were zoonotic.

  • production
  • Improving goat production in the tropics : a manual for development workers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Several mechanisms are involved in the pathogenicity of M. ovipneumoniae, including altering macrophage activity, adhering to the ruminants' ciliated epitheluim via its polysaccharide capsule, inducing the production of autoantibiodies to cilary antigens, and suppressive activity on lymphocytes, all of which are important factors that contribute to the disease in sheep and other small ruminants.
