The clinical syndromes associated with Mycoplasma bovis infection in cattle including respiratory disease, arthritis, otitis, meningitis, reproductive disease and keratoconjunctivitis are well known and reported in the literature. Reports in the literature and feedback from the field would suggest that the incidence of these disease syndromes is increasing and that treatment and management can be challenging. This presentation will highlight the different disease syndromes seen, their diagnosis, management and prevention. Case examples of the different clinical disease manifestations will be presented, including information on potential risk factors. In particular lessons learned from these varied case presentations will be discussed to help inform practitioners with scenarios encountered in their own client’s herds.

    Colin Mason
    Veterinary Centre Manager, Scotland's Rural College
    Colin Mason works as vet for Scotland’s Rural College based in Dumfries. His work includes disease surveillance and investigation work for farm animals. Through the course of his work dairy calf health has been a particular focus as it is one of the common issues in the area and through that time Mycoplasma bovis associated disease has been a particular interest and concern in equal measure! Of late Colin has been involved with research work looking at early detection of disease in milk fed dairy calves and also a Mycoplasma bovis prevalence study in Scotland and it is hoped that this work informs progress in calf health disease management and prevention.
