Bovine viral diarrhoea

  • BVDv is an unfortunate name for a virus that rarely causes diarrhoea!
  • In fact BVDv has an affinity for the reproductive system, causing infertility, abortion and deformities in calves from infected adult cows, and respiratory disease in young calves.
  • BVDv has significant effects on the immune system, predisposing infected animals to other diseases.
