Use of the lactoperoxidase system in the treatment of Escherichia coli diarrhoea in calves



Use of the lactoperoxidase system in the treatment of Escherichia coli diarrhoea in calves



Annales de Medecine Veterinaire 133(2): 143-150



A group of 28 calves were infected with an enteropathic E. coli strain within 24 hours of birth. Untreated controls showed severe infection, and some died. Calves which were given 4000 units of lactoperoxidase from their first milk substitute feed remained free of diarrhoea. Calves not treated until the onset of diarrhoea were cured by the treatment. However, infected calves continued to excrete E. coli.
