The virus is related to rinderpest, measles and canine distemper. Secretions and excretions are rich source of virus and spread of the disease take place through their contamination. After seven days all animals were vaccinated with PPR cell culture vaccine. Goat research needs progress rapidly in order to reach the level of knowledge of other species like cattle or sheep, especially in milk and meat production. PPR, Pests des Petits ruminants Etiology, Epidemiology, Pathogenesis, Clinical finding , diagnosis and Treatment. Clinical examination revealed pyrexia-104.5 â¸° F, salivation, congested mucous membrane, ulcerated lesions on oral cavity, dehydration and mucopurulent nasal discaharge. Information provided by participatory disease surveillance teams was used to develop a database for PPR outbreaks in Pakistan. The owner was suggested to keep the animals at a dry place with regular washing of the mouth with KMnO4 and boroglycerine. Natural transmission occurs primarily through direct contact with infected sheep and goat. You have entered an incorrect email address! Description PPR vaccine (Living) is a preparation derived from cell cultures infected with attenuated Sungri/96 strain of PPR virus. Especially energy use by goats in different conditions and the role of somatic cell count in intramammary infections and milk and cheese quality are discussed. Symptoms of PPR disease PPR is considered as one of the main constraints in augmenting the productivity of small ruminants in developing countries and particularly severely affects poor farmerâs economy. We present a case of 7 year old, female, Nigerian child who had chronic diarrhoea, weight loss and intermittent fever for one year duration with spontaneous discharge of faecal matter from the vagina for 3 months. measures that must be put in place to curb PPR outbreak. Goats are usually known to be more susceptible to the disease. Healthy, sero negative for PPR infection 12 Black Bengal goats were divided into three groups. Influence of disease on haeniatological profile revealed anaemia and mild leucopenia. It is closely related to Rinderpest, measles, canine distemper and morbilliviruses of marine mammals and is the most economically important viral disease of small ruminants [1-3]. This case report b of a patient in catatonic stupor who developed an acute respiratory crisis, and in whom the use of ECT led to quick recovery not only from the psychiatric state but also helped recovery from the medical illness. Pesti des Petitis Ruminants is a highly contagious disease of goats caused by a virus belonging to morbillivirus genus of family âParamyxoviridaeâ. To better understand the relative importance of the multi-purpose functions of small ruminants for their urban owners and related breeding practices including selection criteria, we undertook a comparative analysis across the West African cities of Kano (Nigeria), Bobo Dioulasso (Burkina Faso) and Sikasso (Mali). Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is an acute, highly contagious disease known as goat plague. health service providers. PPR is the one of the priority animal diseases whose control is considered important for poverty alleviation in enzootic countries. Although microthrombi are often found in the pulmonary and coronary circulation, apparent lung and cardiac involvement are clinically infrequent. Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR), also known as Goat Plague and Ovine Rinderpest, occurs in goats, sheep and related species. Kerur N, Jhala MK, Joshi CG. Treatment. Blood samples were collected from animals at 0 day, 7th day, 14th day, 21st day and 30th day. Transmission may take place through contaminated food, water, beddings and other appliances. of applied animal research. Hence, the present vaccine was developed for control of PPR in sheep and goats. Goat Diseases â General Precautions in Goat Farming:-Some of the diseases and health problems can be prevented by following these steps in goat farming. Confirmatory diagnosis was made by molecular technique RT-PCR. â¢ In 2007 China reported PPR for the first time. A case is reported of acute phlegmonous gastritis with successful recovery and a survey of the pertinent literature is presented. Twenty-four villages were selected throughout the country and field investigations were conducted in each village to study the dynamics of the disease.
