Unusual clinical conditions: O.r. in combination with sepsis


In late 2018 and the second quarter of 2020, unusual clinical conditions were detected upon necropsy of animals from three broiler farms. This concerned sepsis (blood poisoning) caused by infection with the Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale (O.r.) bacterium. This bacterium is particularly known for causing abnormalities in the air sacs and lungs, whereby residual lesions are detected upon slaughter, as well as being a commonly named cause of rejections on the slaughter line. There are however descriptions of the bacterium occasionally causing infection in other organs. The clinical condition of sepsis as found in these cases is not described in the literature. The clinical condition of sepsis has been detected multiple times at the farms in question (in several flocks).

In April 2022, GD once again detected O.r. in combination with sepsis at two of the aforementioned farms. You can read more about these unusual clinical conditions in te highlights report poulty of July 2022.
