Quarterly Pathology I in South America by: Veterinaria Digital

24/05/2010 Birds

The first quarter of the year has characterized, in South America, by important rains in the south of Ecuador. This climatic factor, which is a cyclical factor, has influenced on the growth of intestinal pathologies, especially of parasites and mycotoxins.

We can highlight Eimeria acervulina, E.necatrix y E.maxima in broilers and laying hens, Isospora suis in swine and Crytosporidium sp in ruminants.

We also highlight the growth of intestinal parasitosis in wild birds, as over 5% showed positive diagnostic in feces.

Regarding mycotoxins, we can see a generalized growth of contamination in land and storage places due to environmental dampness.

Among the main problems, we underline the presence of fumonisinas and tricotecenos in birds and sterigmatocistina in swine.
