Abstract

Experimental pneumonia in lambs could be reproduced by M. mycoides subsp. mycoides (12 ml of PPLO broth culture containing 1.2 × 10 9 cfu/ml) in lambs administered by respiratory route. Clinical signs constituted rise in temperature, nasal and ocular discharge, dullness, depression, coughing, sneezing, laboured breathing and arching of back. Hb, PCV and TEC values declined. A significant neutrophilia along with lymphocytopenia was also noticed.
