Pox Problem in Sheep & Goat

Pox, caused by the Orf virus, is a viral infection affecting sheep and goats, presenting as contagious skin lesions known as sore mouth in sheep and contagious ecthyma in goats. It results in pustules and scabby lesions around the mouth, lips, and sometimes the udder or feet. This condition can cause feeding difficulties and discomfort, potentially leading to secondary infections. Controlling pox involves maintaining good hygiene, isolating affected animals, and considering vaccination to prevent its spread among herds
Common causes of Pox in sheep & Goat include:

Orf Virus Transmission

Direct contact with infected animals or contaminated materials, such as feeders, bedding, or surfaces, can transmit the Orf virus responsible for pox.

Environmental Persistence

The Orf virus can persist in the environment, allowing for indirect transmission between animals through shared spaces or equipment.

Young or Immuno compromised Animals

Younger or animals with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to contracting the virus and developing pox lesions.

Seasonal Factors

Pox outbreaks often occur during periods of higher environmental contamination or when animals are grazing on rough terrain that could potentially cause minor abrasions, allowing the virus to enter the skin more easily.
