Poultry Health Science Module 5 Enterococci and Streptococci

  30 mei 2022  in Online

Infections with Enterococci or Streptococci may cause disease in poultry varying in age from day-old to adult chickens. Species of emerging importance in commercial poultry are Streptococcus zooepidemicus, S. gallinaceus, Enterococcus faecalis, E. hirae, E. durans, and E. cecorum. Infection with either of these bacteria can lead to a diversity of pathological changes, such as endocarditis, arthritis, and osteomyelitis of vertebra T6 which may result in poor flock uniformity, mortality and high condemnation rates in the slaughterhouse.
