What’s New in Pasteurellaceae: An Old Cause of Respiratory Disease
with Claire Burbick, DVM, PHD, DACVM
1 CE Credit
About the Event
The bacterial family Pasteurellaceae, including Pasteurella multocida, Mannheimia haemolytica and Histophilus somni have contributed to significant morbidity and mortality in ruminant species causing pneumonias, septicemias, and mastitis among other conditions. Making diagnosis more complicated, these bacteria are also components of normal mucosal flora. This course will provide an update on research topics, including virulence and antimicrobial resistance, in familiar members of these common bacterial respiratory pathogens of ruminants. It will also discuss emerging diseases associated with less familiar Pasteurellaceae, like Bibersteinia trehalosi and other Mannheimia species.
