Clinical Effects

Epidemiology

Habitat

  • Found within the bovine respiratory tract particularity the epithelium of the pharynx and trachea and the lungs.

Transmission

  • Direct contact, aerosol and contaminated fomites.

Pathological effects

  • Clinical signs including fever, nasal discharge and increased respiration rate.
  • Histological analysis may show epithelial necrosis in the turbinates and trachea and interstitial pneumonia may be evident in the lungs.
  • Disease may be complicated by stress or secondary bacterial infection.

Other Host Effects

  • Many infections are subclinical or mild in severity.
  • If infected with BRV, animals are more susceptible to bacterial infections such as pneumonia.
  • Virus may be carried in pharyngeal tissues for up to 1 month.

Control

Control via animal

  • High stocking density is a known risk factor for the spread of BRDC caused by BRV.

Vaccination

  • None available.
