Coronavirus-associated diarrhea (winter dysentery) in adult cattle



Coronavirus-associated diarrhea (winter dysentery) in adult cattle



Canadian Veterinary Journal 30(10): 825-827



Two outbreaks of winter dysentery which affected Saskatchewan herds in early 1988 are reported. In the first herd where the cattle were housed together in a barn, 27 of 35 cows, 8 of 10 heifers, 5 of 13 calves and the bull were affected by diarrhoea which was severe in 14 animals, moderate in 12 and mild in 10. Campylobacter-like organisms were seen in faecal smears from 6 of 10 animals, but no bacteria were isolated. Small numbers of oocysts of Eimeria spp. were seen in 2 faecal samples.
