Causes: Pneumonia refers to the inflammation of the pulmonary parenchyma usually accompanied by the inflammation of bronchioles. Pneumonia occurs when infectious and non-infectious agents cause the lungs of sheep/goats to become inflamed. Most frequent causes of respiratory infection and death are Pasteurella multocida or Mannheimia haemolytica. These two pathogens cause outbreaks of acute pneumonia in sheep/goats of all ages Respiratory infections from these pathogens are associated with poor management practices, occur as a secondary infection, or occur as a consequence of severe stress.
