Clostridial Diseases such as lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus,braxy, blackleg and black disease can all be fatal to sheep. The organisms that cause clostridial diseases can commonly be found in soil and when conditions are right they can even multiply throughout the soil. These organisms can also live in the stomach of sheep without causing any damage and then spread throughout the soil via the animals manure. When the conditions are correct for the organism they release toxins which when the sheep are stressed can be fatal.
What causes a sheep to be stressed?
Transport: Long journeys and crowded transport conditions.
Nutritional Imbalances: Underfeeding or over grazing can both lead to imbalances in the sheep’s needs and can cause ill health.
Weather: Extreme heat, humidity, or cold can all cause a sheep to be stressed.
Parasites: Parasites such as worms and fluke can lower the immune system and stress the animal.
Confinement: Overcrowded confinement or long periods of confinement.
Handling: Especially for wilder sheep that are not handled very often.
Weaning: The Weaning of Lambs can be extremely stressful.
Vaccinating your sheep with Covexin 10 will protect your sheep at times of stress and reduce mortality rates by protecting against pasteurellosis pneumonia and clostridial diseases.
