• Herd
  • A study was conducted in 1994-96 with the aim of assessing the serological prevalence of Border Disease (BD) among sheep and goats in Denmark and to investigate possible relations to herd factors. (dtu.dk)
  • Unfortunately, by the time you see symptoms, there has been many months even years for the disease to have been present in your herd and spread to other goats. (goat-link.com)
  • Raised feeders and clean goat areas will help not transfer the disease, should it be in your herd. (goat-link.com)
  • 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)
  • bacteria
  • The response of an animal to Salmonella challenge will depend on multiple factors including number of bacteria and virulence, specific immunity to Salmonella from vaccination or prior exposure to that strain, and a wide range of factors influencing general health (immune capacity, concurrent disease, nutritional state, stress). (veterinaryhandbook.com.au)
  • Many factors interact to influence the occurrence of disease including Salmonella challenge (number of bacteria and virulence of a strain), specific immunity to Salmonella infection as well as general health and immune capacity (influenced by innate immune response capacity, concurrent disease, nutrition and stress). (veterinaryhandbook.com.au)
  • Consulting a vet is important for this disease since there are many different bacteria that cause mastitis and different antibiotics are best for each. (blogspot.com)
  • The bacteria that causes this disease (Mycobacterium paratuberculosis) , localizes in the intestinal wall, which in turn disrupts the digestion and absorption of nutrients because of thicken intestinal walls. (goat-link.com)
  • commonly
  • This disease is usually thought to be commonly detected between the ages of 3 and 5 years old, even though the goat would have been exposed as a young kid. (goat-link.com)
  • infection
  • Within an individual exposed animal the outcome may range from resistance (no disease at all), to mild disease, to severe infection and possibly death. (veterinaryhandbook.com.au)
  • The export process is associated with a range of stressors (feed/water deprivation, change in environment and feed, transport, mixing of animals, exposure to other diseases, climatic stress) that may increase the level of Salmonella shedding and make animals more susceptible to infection. (veterinaryhandbook.com.au)
  • Stressors such as transport, yarding, feed and water curfews or periods of deprivation, inappetence, concurrent disease and inclement weather can all reduce host resistance and increase the risk of severe infection following exposure with Salmonella. (veterinaryhandbook.com.au)
  • If untreated the infection spreads and the goat may die or lose the udder. (blogspot.com)
  • Infection is life-long, and it may be years before signs of the disease occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • scrapie
  • In a controlled study in the UK goats and Blackface where infected by researchers but there is not one documented case of naturally spread scrapie in a Blackface raised in the USA or the UK. (wikipedia.org)
  • Scrapie, an invariably fatal disease of sheep and goats, is a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). (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)
  • 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)
  • occur
  • Outbreaks of clinical disease may occur during assembly or at sea under favourable conditions (high density of stressed or susceptible animals and heavy exposure). (veterinaryhandbook.com.au)
  • farmer
  • It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Goat (aired on 4/15/12) - While undercover as a goat and a farmer, Skreet and Yeager infiltrate a dangerous weapons compound where they encounter the Mad Goat who is meeting with a Heptagon scientist in the Heptagon's plot to distribute the Mad Goat Disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • handbook
  • 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)
  • humans
  • As such the diseases of these animals are of great economic importance to humans. (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)
  • outbreaks
  • Features the latest information on a variety of exotic diseases and their geographic spread in recent years -- including outbreaks of tuberculosis and previously unseen diseases of domesticated goats. (worldcat.org)
  • SYMPTOMS
  • Sometimes a goat with coccidiosis (coccidia infestation) has an on-again-off-again soft stool or no obvious symptoms at all. (blogspot.com)
  • The doe will rapidly metabolize fat from her body stores producing ketones (a toxic by-product) and the symptoms of the disease. (blogspot.com)
  • slowly
  • The disease develops slowly, and after 2 or more years, the animal has difficulty using its legs properly. (blogspot.com)
  • Mycoplasma
  • As of now, and with many Mycoplasma diseases, no protective immune responses have been achieved with the use of vaccines, though antibodies can be obtained. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
