Failure of transfer of immunity from dam’s colostrum generates a negative effect on calves’ health leading to increased morbidity and mortality (De Nise et al., 1989; Wittum and Perino, 1995). Unawareness of the colostral quality and variation in the calf’s capability to efficiently absorb immunoglobulins (IgG) supports the need for specific evaluation of the immunity transfer at a herd level. The aim of the study was to evaluate the performances of a field test for passive immunity transfer (PIT) in calves. [less ▲]

Bovine Respiratory Disease, or BRD, are common in young cattle in the first year of life but occurs mainly before 6 months. A peak of incidence is noticed between 2-10 weeks, due to a decline of immunity. BRD is associated with the well-known shipping-fever that may come from cumulative stress. This condition can reach 5-20% case fatality rate and a morbidity rate up to 100%. Most of the time, the treatment administered is effective. In other cases, a relapse within 2 weeks, associated or not with mortality, can be observed. BRD induces economic losses with treatments (antibiotics), prevention (vaccination) and mortalities. There are also zootechnical consequences with growth retardation, circulation of infectious agents, and increased sensitivity to other pathogens. Cattle are more susceptible to BRD for many reasons. They have narrow upper airways that increase air speed and allow a deeper colonization of particles in the lower respiratory tract. There is also a link between the digestive and respiratory system in bovines. Inhalation of eructation gaz occurs regularly. The respiratory tract in cattle is more sensitive to endotoxins. In case of rumen acidosis, a paralysis of the mucociliary escalator is observed. Finally, cases such liver abscess or Vena Cava Caudale thrombosis, a metastatic pneumonia can follow. BRD often begins with virus attack, which may be complicated with surroundings bacterial infections. Among the different viral aetiologies, Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus (B-RSV), Parainfluenza virus (PI-3), Bovine Herpes Virus (BHV-1 or IBR), Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus (BVD, for its immunosuppression effect) are the most frequent encountered. Adenovirus and Coronavirus, BHV-4, Rhinovirus, Reovirus, and Enterovirus can also be present, in a lesser extent. Among bacteriological causes, Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Histophilus somni, Trueperella pyogenes, and Mycoplasma bovis (dispar) are commonly met. Chlamydophila and Salmonella dublin can sometimes also provoke pneumonias. An onset of BRD can begin with only an increased rectal temperature. That is why it is recommended to the owner to check for temperature in the different batches of animals. After, other symptoms will appear, such as cough, nasal discharge, dyspnea, etc. BRD can be categorized in 4 clinical grades, from 1 to 4, according to the severity of the disease. Grade I does not need a treatment, as well as grade IV that is so severe that the animal may probably die within a few days. Other scores exist and they also take into account symptoms such cough, rectal temperature, nasal discharge, etc. The grade or score of the disease is important to establish a treatment, a prognosis or an ancillary exam. Measurement of blood L-Lactate (with portable spectrophotometer, e.g. Accutrend-Plus, Cobas, ~150€ and ~3€/test) allows on the field the determination of the grade of BRD as well as prognosis. L-Lactate ≥ 4 mmol/L in calves with BRD (up to 13 months) is associated with grade IV BRD and poor prognosis (death within 3 days) with 95% sensitivity and 80% specificity (Coghe et al., 2000). Another study shows that L-Lactate > 3.7 mmol/L is associated with 44 times more risk to die in calves with BRD, compared to calves with L-Lactate <1.3 mmol/L (Buczinski et al., 2014). BRD is clearly a multifactorial disease. Its management must include the resistance of animal (genetic, nutrition, vaccination), the environment (ventilation, hygiene) and the identification of the infectious agents. This conference is focused on the last topic. [less ▲]

On-farm ancillary exams have been considered as needless in cattle practice. For a long time most of these exams could only be performed by laboratories. Only few analyses could be done on the field, but with inaccurate, slow or expensive results. Nowadays, new devices appeared on the market, with greater accuracy for lower prices. The goal of these tests is not only to provide a better diagnosis, but also to improve communication with the owner, and also to give a quick therapeutic answer or a prognosis. The ancillary exams have to be profitable for both the owner and the practitioner. It can be done at an individual or herd level to demonstrate the subclinical diseases. The benefits of field-tests are essentially saving time, and for some assays, saving money as well, with relatively accurate analyses. In order to adapt to the situation, it is advised to know the sensitivity and specificity of the tests before doing the analysis. In some cases it is necessary to have a better sensitivity or specificity to adapt to goals: avoiding false-positive or false-negative results. A good specificity of a test is required while looking for a diagnosis, as for a screening approach, a good sensitivity is preferred. Anyway, the use of field tests must be thought carefully and realised only after complete clinical examination of the patient. As it is previously mentioned, the ancillary exams are an important communication tool with the client, and a starting point to a dialogue to convince him to the implementation of appropriate corrective measures in the herd. Here are only presented the different field tests that can be done within 15 minutes, beside the animals, in the barn. Tests are explained in the well-known order (as a disease will act): inflammatory, metabolic, immunological response and the potential presence of the infectious agent. [less ▲]

L’organisation du véhicule du vétérinaire, à des fins thérapeutiques et diagnostiques, nécessite des aménagements spécifiques, qui peuvent s’avérer coûteux. Il est essentiel d’offrir une protection thermique (chaud et froid) pour les médicaments, appareils diagnostics et consommables (tests diagnostiques), ainsi qu’une protection contre les chocs (flacons en verre et appareillages). Certains équipements nécessitent une alimentation électrique. Dès lors, un convertisseur (12V ⇌ 220V) suffisamment puissant sera nécessaire. Une alimentation extérieure permettra d’une part de palier un manque de puissance de l’équipement, et d’autre part de recharger les batteries en fin de journée. La possibilité d’avoir une source d’eau est un atout pour certains tests mais également pour nettoyer ses bottes et certains outils. Enfin, la possibilité d’avoir une surface plane et protégée du soleil et des intempéries, permet de réaliser certains tests/analyses en tout confort, depuis le véhicule, dans la ferme. [less ▲]

Actuellement, les tests diagnostiques réalisables au chevet du patient en médecine rurale deviennent plus facilement abordables financièrement et permettent d’améliorer non seulement le diagnostic mais également le pronostic lors d’une pathologie. Le dosage du L-lactate par les appareils portatifs trouve particulièrement son utilité lors des pathologies respiratoires des jeunes veaux, permettant de mettre en évidence les cas incurables. Ce test est également pertinent lors d’abdomen aigu. Malheureusement, concernant les diarrhées néonatales et l’acidose ruménale, c’est essentiellement du D-lactate qui est formé par les bactéries ce qui rend cet examen complémentaire difficilement interprétable. D’autres paramètres, tels que le pH sanguin, la pression partielle en oxygène ou en dioxyde de carbone, les différents ions, l’excès de base, l’hémoglobine, l’hématocrite, l’urée ou la créatinine sont à présent tout à fait accessibles au praticien rural et lui permettent d’affiner son diagnostic à moindre coût. Les appareils de mesure sur le terrain et au cabinet vétérinaire sont multiples et pour la plupart polyvalents pour mesurer plusieurs paramètres mais nécessitent un investissement financier de départ. Chacun présente des caractéristiques spécifiques qui répondent au besoin précis de chaque clientèle. [less ▲]

Death of calves after epileptiform seizures can be caused by metabolic disorders including hypomagnesaemia, although a range of other conditions may also be implicated and therefore also warrant investigation. Hypomagnesaemia is primarily observed in herds where calves are fed exclusively with either milk or milk substitute products. Hyperparathyroidism is associated with congestion and hypertrophy of the parathyroid gland and causes both hypercalcaemia and hypophosphataemia. However, its exact aetiology currently remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to explain epileptiform seizures in calves from a cattle herd presenting both deaths and decreased average daily gain (ADG). A Montbeliard herd with calves presenting epileptiform seizures from the age of five weeks was studied. The herd consisted of 39 cows and 46 calves. Tachycardia, nervousness and trampling, violent seizures of tetany lasting approximately 15 minutes were all observed, while opisthotonos was observed in 5 calves. Three of the latter calves died. The remaining calves presented a decreased ADG. Blood and urine biochemical assays were performed on 8 sick calves to determine the aetiology of the clinical signs. The assays revealed normo/hyper-calcaemia, hypophosphataemia and hypomagnesaemia, as well as hypocalciuria, hyperphosphaturia and hypomagnesuria. Deficiencies in iodine, iron and vitamins A, D3 and E were also reported in the herd. These calves could potentially be suffering from hyperparathyroidism. Hyperparathyroidism results in hypomagnesaemia, hypovitaminosis-A and, on occassion, hypercalcaemia and hypophosphataemia. This condition can lead to seizures, muscular problems, heart attacks and anorexia. The simultaneous occurrence of hypomagnesaemia, hyperparathyroidism and hypovitaminosis-A has been never described in related research literature. This is, therefore, in all likelihood a new metabolic disorder facing young cattle. Blood and urine biochemical assays are important tools for the detection of this pathological entity in calves. A dosage of parathyroid hormone (PTH) by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (EIA) method using a kit suitable for cattle can be used to detect hyperparathyroidism. [less ▲]

L’agriculture évolue, la médecine vétérinaire suit le même chemin. Les troupeaux d’hier ressemblent de moins en moins à ceux d’aujourd’hui. Hier, la médecine vétérinaire se concentrait sur l’urgence et donc le cas individuel. Dès aujourd’hui, et encore plus demain, il faut voir l’individu dans sa globalité et donc dans son troupeau. L’unité épidémiologique n’est plus l’individu mais le troupeau. La médecine devient davantage préventive que curative. De là est né le concept Herd Health & Production Management (HH&PM) alliant à la fois des mesures préventives et curatives dans le but d’améliorer la productivité et la rentabilité du troupeau. Cette forme de médecine garde toutefois à l’esprit les attentes du consommateur en termes de qualité des denrées alimentaires d’origine animale (résidus, qualités organoleptiques et microbiologiques) et de bien-être animal. Le concept HH&PM peut se définir comme « l’expression maximale du potentiel génétique d’un animal individuel et du troupeau comme un tout, en optimisant le management de l’exploitation, ainsi que les conditions de la ferme et en conséquence, les entrées économiques de la ferme ». L’examen global d’un troupeau requiert toutefois des connaissances élargies : alimentation, médecine, thériogénologie, bioclimatologie, parasitologie, bactériologie, épidémiologie, économie, zootechnologie. Il est essentiel de ne pas segmenter ses connaissances à l’approche du troupeau tant les problèmes rencontrés peuvent être multifactoriels. La 4ème édition de ce carnet clinique se veut toujours plus pratique et calquée sur le modèle des visites HH&PM que le Département Clinique des Animaux de Production (DCP) de l’Université de Liège réalise quotidiennement sur le terrain. De nombreux rappels sont proposés ainsi que des pistes et/ou canevas permettant d’appréhender au mieux une problématique de troupeau. Cependant, il est très difficile d’être exhaustif pour un carnet de poche (cet outil est avant tout un aide-mémoire en exploitation) et le lecteur prendra soin de compléter ses connaissances dans les livres/cours ad hoc. Par ailleurs, les informations contenues dans ce carnet ne sont pas fixées une fois pour toutes. Les législations, normes, spécialités pharmaceutiques peuvent évoluer et le détenteur de ce carnet clinique de médecine de troupeaux veillera à se tenir informé de ces modifications potentielles. Enfin, bien que les normes établies constituent des repères objectifs, le praticien sera attentif à ne pas émettre de jugement ou diagnostic définitif sur base de simples normes, mais analysera la situation dans sa globalité, en tenant compte de l’aspect clairement multifactoriel des maladies de production dans les élevages bovins laitiers ou viandeux. Enfin, j’adresse mes remerciements aux Profs Emile Bouchard et Luc DesCôteaux, (Université de Montréal, St-Hyacinthe Québec, Canada), et leurs collaborateurs, au Dr. Virginie Filteau (DSAHR Inc., Québec, Canada), à mes collègues du DCP et de la FMV, et à MSD pour l’inspiration, l’impulsion et l’aide à la réalisation de ce carnet clinique.

Magnesium plays an important role at different levels in the body. It is absorbed essentially in the rumen. Numerous factors, such as an increase in the ruminal concentration of potassium, interfere with the bioavailability of magnesium in the body. There is no hormonal control of magnesium, so prevention of hypomagnesaemia is by intake of magnesium supplementation in the ration and management of risk factors. The different forms of tetany are treated in the same manner, that is, by perfusion of the animal and corrective supplementation for the at-risk animals on the farm. [less ▲]

Trace elements (TE) are essential for ruminant health. Numerous deficiencies are seen in Europe that cause diseases mainly in young animals. The main clinically important TE in ruminants are selenium (Se), iodine (I), zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu). They play a role in organogenesis and have most effect on immunity and growth. Placental passage of TE from the dam to the calf occurs, and after calving, Se and I pass via the colostrum/milk. Trace element supplements are essential during gestation for the development of the calf in utero, as well as for the animal’s health and growth after birth. [less ▲]

A pregnant 3.5 year-old high-productive Holstein cow in the third month of lactation showed colic signs, marked anorexia, and stopped milk production. Clinical examination revealed tachypnea, pyrexia and the mucous membranes were all congested. Signs of abdominal discomfort were observed, the abdomen was tense and painful; digestive activity was poor. Blood investigations revealed inflammation, cholestasis, and leucocytosis with marked neutrophilia. Trans-abdominal ultrasonography revealed decreased digestive transit and enlarged gall-bladder. Hepatic or biliary involvement was suspected. A right-flank exploratory laparotomy revealed a gallbladder filled with firm and mobile 0.5 to 1cm diameter fluctuant masses. Digital palpation allowed cholelith extraction through the cystic duct into the duodenum. After the surgery, the cow progressively regained a normal appetite and pain signs decreased. Blood samples analysed 10 days after the surgery still showed inflammation but to a lesser extent. Hepatic enzymes were markedly increased, indicating hepatic injury. Three months after the surgery, the cow was healthy and was inseminated. This case report suggests that cholelithiasis may be diagnosed and successfully treated in early stage of the disease in cattle, though this condition is rare in this species. This is the second report of manual cholelith extraction in a cow. [less ▲]
