Controlling CBPP outbreak in kogi

2018 - Vetsark

outbreak

Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is an insidious pneumonic disease of cattle sometimes referred to as lung sickness. Clinically, CBPP is manifested by anorexia, fever and respiratory symptoms such as dyspnoea, cough and nasal discharges. CBPP is found in the acute, subacute and chronic forms.

The disease is characterized by the presence of sero-fibrinous interlobular oedema and hepatization giving a marbled appearance of the lung in acute to subacute cases, and capsulated lesions (sequestra) in the lungs of some chronically infected cattle. Joint infections are common in calves.

In collaboration with the government supplying the vaccines, Vetsark in 2018 carried out a full scale vaccination operation in Kogi state and Abuja, Nigeria to help control the outbreak of CBPP. Over 120 cattles were vaccinated and over 50 farms visited and oriented on the prevention and control of CBPP.
