Abstract

LEASK, Rhoda  and  STEYL, Johan. Mycotic rhinitis in a Mutton Merino ewe. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2017, vol.88, n.1, pp.1-3. ISSN 2224-9435.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/jsava.v88.1429.

Although nasal masses are uncommon in sheep and may have several causes, including neoplasia and bacterial, fungal and viral infections, these lesions may lead to economic losses resulting from weight loss and even death. It is therefore important to differentiate between various categories of upper respiratory tract obstructions and lower respiratory tract infections. The correct aetiological diagnosis of obstructive masses is essential for appropriate treatment and management to be given or action to be taken. The presentation, clinical signs, treatment and pathology of a case of suspected mycotic rhinitis in a 6-year-old Mutton Merino ewe, are described.
