Enterotoxemia

Etiology:
Cl. perfringens is the causative agent of enterotoxemia. Its types B and C mainly cause disease in calves. It mostly occurs in highly fed calves.

Sign and Symptoms:
In calves, there is acute diarrhea, dysentery, abdominal pain, convulsions, and opisthotonos. Death may occur in a few hours, but in less severe cases survive for a few days, and recovery over a period of several days is possible.

Treatment:
Treatment is usually ineffective because of the severity of the disease, but if available, specific hyperimmune serum is indicated, and oral administration of antibiotics may be helpful.

Control:
Vaccinate the calves against enterotoxemia
