Example text

Treatment to achieve a healthy uterine environment is rarely successful because fetal detritus remains embedded in the endometrium, causing persistent chronic inflammation and preventing a successful pregnancy. ABORTION When abortion, premature birth, stillbirth or the birth of weak non-viable calves occur, the subsequent investigation is likely to include not only the veterinary practitioner, but also an investigating laboratory. In the majority of bovine abortions the cause is never confirmed because there is inadequate or inappropriate material submitted to the investigating laboratory.

The calf ’s forelimbs should protrude a hand’s breadth beyond the fetlock joints after a maximum of 10 minutes’ traction (two people: yourself and the farmer) in order to proceed safely (89, 90); options should be reconsidered if greater traction is necessary. • Posterior presentation (91). Two strong people pulling on calving ropes should be able to extend the hocks more than one hand’s breadth beyond the cow’s vulva (calf ’s hindquarters now fully within the pelvic inlet) within 10 minutes. Arterial blood from the umbilical vessels, which snap off short in these calvings, may be seen (92).

Disease is most commonly associated with the introduction of carrier animals or access to faecal contaminated feed/water supplies (79). CLINICAL PRESENTATION Abortion during the last trimester, with placental retention, followed by poor lactation; systemic disease is uncommon with S. dublin infection, but likely with S. typhimurium infection, where abortion can follow septicaemia and enteritis (80). DIAGNOSIS Diagnosis is based on the history, clinical signs and bacteriological culture of the organism from cotyledons and fetal stomach contents, milk, uterine discharges and faeces of the dam.
