Bovine Viral Dirarrhea (BVD) is one of the major cattle diseases with worldwide distribution. Like any viral disease, BVD is not treatable. Affected animals may suffer severely from the infection, as the disease can cause a variety of clinical symptoms, including immunosuppression (i.e. the reduced activity of the immune system to fight back other pathogens), infertility, abortions and congenital defects in calves. Some animals may develop a more severe condition known as mucosal disease, the result of which is a high mortality rate in affected animals. Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health offers help for farmers and veterinarians to protect animals infected with Bovine Viral Diarrhea.
