PARASITES IN SHEEP
Roundworms are important endoparasites, causing clinical disease and lost production in young cattle and sheep, control is inevitably complex.
mites, mange and sheep scab
Mite infestations cause skin irritation leading to oozing and skin thickening. The intense irritation will lead to disruption of feeding patterns.
Disease caused by liver fluke (fasciolosis) is an increasingly common, economically important parasitic disease of sheep in the UK.
Flies cause major economic production losses in livestock.They attack, irritate and feed on cattle, sheep and other animals.
In the UK, ticks are vectors for infectious diseases such as redwater fever (Babesia spp), tick-borne fever, tick pyaemia and louping ill.
Transfer of lice between animals requires close contact, such as yarding, transport or housing, especially in cool cloudy weather.
Clostridial infections progress rapidly, and many affected sheep and lambs will be found dead or dying. Treatment with antibiotics is rarely effective.
