  1. sheep rot

    Sheep rot, also known as foot rot, is a highly contagious bacterial infection that affects sheep and other hoofed livestock. It is caused by two types of bacteria, Dichelobacter nodosus and Fusobacterium necrophorum, which interact to cause painful inflammation, swelling, and lameness. In severe cases, it can cause damage to the hoof and lead to significant weight loss and decrease in wool and milk production. It can spread rapidly among animals via contaminated soil or walking surfaces.
