Experimental conjunctival infection of lambs with a strain of Chlamydia psittaci isolated from the eyes of a sheep naturally affected with keratoconjunctivitis



Experimental conjunctival infection of lambs with a strain of Chlamydia psittaci isolated from the eyes of a sheep naturally affected with keratoconjunctivitis



Veterinary Record 127(9): 229-231



Five ram-lambs were inoculated into the left conjunctival sac with the 15R isolate of C. psittaci, recovered from a sheep with keratoconjunctivitis. A sixth ram-lamb was kept in contact with them. The five lambs developed varying degrees of acute conjunctivitis and 14 days later C. psittaci could be recovered from the inoculated eyes, from which Branhamella ovis was also isolated.
