Epidemiological and pathological study on the causes of abortion in sheep and goats in Hungary (1998-2005)



Epidemiological and pathological study on the causes of abortion in sheep and goats in Hungary (1998-2005)



Acta Veterinaria Hungarica 54(4): 503-515



The objective of the investigations was to study the causes of abortion in sheep and goats in Hungary during a 7.5-year period. The authors investigated 246 cases of ovine and 75 cases of caprine abortions by different diagnostic methods. An infectious origin was found in 126 cases (51.2%) of ovine and 19 cases (25%) of caprine abortions. The most important cause of ovine and caprine abortions was Chlamydophila abortus infection with a prevalence of 46% and 17%, respectively. Other infections causing sheep and goat abortions were present only in 5.2% and 8% of the cases, respectively. The results obtained by different diagnostic methods are discussed.
