of ruminal movements, weak pulse, slow capillary refill, subnormal temperature, diarrhoea, and colic. Animals that survive the acute illness may die within days of kidney failure, fungal rumenitis or peritonitis. Some will later develop laminitis or liver abscess. Bubbly diarrhoea is a sign that feed is passing through undigested and there is fermentation occurring in the faeces. At necropsy, the rumen is distended with pellets and fluid. Note that sloughing of the rumen mucosa is a normal postmortem change occurring within an hour of death and should not be regarded as evidence of rumenitis or excessive grain feeding unless associated with inflammatory change.. Urine test strips or specific test strips may be used to test pH of rumen fluid. Normal rumen pH is ,5.9 and acidosis should be suspected if the pH is less than 5.5. Rumen pH can change in the hours after death as rumen fermentation continues, samples not taken close to the time of death must be interpreted with caution. Laboratory ...

Signs usually appear within an hour of toxic feed being consumed. The prominent signs are respiratory distress, muscle twitching, staggering, cherry red mucous membranes and rapid death. At necropsy the blood is cherry red, later becoming dark red. The rumen content may smell like bitter almonds. The main differential diagnosis is nitrate-nitrite poisoning, which also causes respiratory distress and rapid death but the mucous membranes and blood are chocolate brown instead of cherry red.. Laboratory confirmation is by chemical demonstration of cyanide in the fodder or rumen contents. Specimens must be submitted frozen to prevent ...

There is usually sudden onset of feed refusal, recumbency, tachypnoea (fast breathing), ruminal atony, diarrhoea and brown urine. In the subsequent days to weeks, there may be development of illthrift and signs of congestive heart failure including submandibular and brisket oedema, and distended and pulsating jugular veins.. Necropsies performed on animals dying acutely may not reveal any gross lesions. In longer surviving animals there may be pallor of the myocardium, especially of the left ventricle reflecting areas of myocardial necrosis. There may also be signs related to congestive heart failure: pulmonary oedema, hydrothorax, ascites and hepatomegaly (enlarged liver).. Laboratory confirmation is based on specimens of myocardium and skeletal muscle submitted in buffered formalin for histology, and identification of toxic concentrations of an ionophore in samples of feed. ...

The blood volume of cattle is approximately 6% bodyweight (24L for a 400 kg steer). In acute bleeding events, the first signs of weakness, dyspnoea and mucosal pallor occur when 15 to 20% of the blood volume is lost. Shock, collapse and death occur when 30 to 40% blood volume is lost.. Necropsy findings will always include pallor of the carcass. Jaundice, petechial haemorrhages, watery blood, ruptured organs, dark urine, splenic enlargement or black faeces may be present, depending on the cause.. Note that petechial or ecchymotic haemorrhages affecting the heart are a normal necropsy finding, particularly in euthanased cattle. Haemorrhages elsewhere in the body are probably abnormal and may be associated with generalized viral or bacterial infections or a clotting defect.. Where the cause of anaemia is not obvious, laboratory diagnosis may be assisted by specimens of faeces for parasitology, and haematological examination of samples such as blood, spleen and bone marrow. ...
