(Bacterial) Enteritis
by Gary Pfalzbot
About the Author

(Bacterial) Enteritis is defined as an inflammation of the intestines, normally the small intestines, and is often confused with or considered as Entertoxemia, but in particular, Bacterial Enteritis is caused by the E.coli bacteria. Enteritis by itself may follow conditions and diseases such as Coccidiosis in which damage to the intestinal lining occurs. It is considered that young kids are more susceptible to Bacterial Enteritis whereas ALL goats are susceptible to Enteritis. Vaccinations with the CD/T shot are considered to greatly reduce cases of Bacterial Enteritis, but it is important to note that frequent re-vaccination may be necessary in boostering goats against Clostridium perfringens type D. In many cases, Enteritis is treated in a similar fashion as Coccidiosis through the use of sulfa drugs (sulfadimethoxine) such as Albon«. It should be noted that Sulfadimethoxine is not labeled for goats. The importance of CD/T vaccinations for young kids at 30 days of age should be understood as well. As I research both Enteritis and Bacterial Enteritis further, I will post my findings.
