Avian hepatic abscesses by Pseudomonas
The use of contaminated water with Pseudomonas is related to the presence of hepatic abscesses
Desert areas are frequently used, by poultry industries, to build farms. Apart from the difficulties derived from the temperature changes between night and day and the accumulation of non-recycled litter, where many coleoptera colonies of the genus Alphitobius of the family Tenebrionidae grow, another main problem is the water supply. Commonly, water is transported and stored in tanks that are not very protected, which may be contaminated with Pseudomonas despite the use of disinfectants. The use of this contaminated water is related to the presence of hepatic abscesses, such as the ones in the pictures.
