What Are The Syndromes Of Winter Dysentery And The Prevention Methods From This Disease?

Winter dysentery is an infectious and viral disease which is seen between the months of October and April. It shows itself with watery or bloody diarrhoea and can cause anorexia and sudden milk decreases for animals. 

Adult and young animals can get this disease and infect it to the others via contiguity, excrement and air. It is frequently seen in humid and cold weathers. Infections rapidly occur epidemically. Winter dysentery is considered to be feed- based. Its’ syndromes can be febrility (39,5-40,5°C), poor apettite, milk efficiency decrease (% 10- 30) and dark green and smelly diarrhea. The disease shouldn’t be confused with acidosis. It heals within a few days by itself. If diarrhea is bloody, preventive medicines must be used. Because it is a viral disease, antibiotics don’t show expected impacts. Treatments aren’t usually administered. In this case, electrolytic additives can be used. Moreover, energy reinforcements can be made in order to prevent acedia and such negative circumstances. 

In order to prevent the occurrence of this disease, entrance of the infectious factors to businesses should be avoided. Biosafety procedures should be applied by the relevant people such as; veterinarians, milk collectors, personnels of the feed factory, other farm owners, their nurses, etc... Moreover, if more other animals are required to take into the business, then quarantine should importantly be kept. Different materials should be used in cleanness of fertilizers and preparation of feeds. Otherwise; infections are going to be seen more rapidly. The usage of different equipment is essential in this process.
