Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is a worldwide, highly infectious disease that threatens many mammals, particularly cattle. This potentially fatal respiratory disease is spread through aerosolized droplets or ingestion. Infection can cause chronic disease, which can spread beyond the lungs to include the liver, spleen, lymph nodes and intestines. Signs of disease include weight loss, a recurring fever, weakness and decrease in appetite. Some infected cattle also will have swollen lymph nodes, a moist cough and chronic mastitis.
