First case of Q-Fever diagnosed in Ireland

On a farm visit to a dairy herd in Co. Cavan today, a high proportion of freshly calved cows had infection of the uterine horn. The client revealed that a number of cows had slipped their calves. His vet submitted blood samples to the regional vet in Athlone. Q-Fever was the result given back to the client. This was the first case of Q-Fever diagnosed in Ireland. It causes approximately 17% of abortions in dairy herds in Germany. This herd previously had an outbreak of Neospora and the vet thinks that this may predispose the cows to Q-Fever. Dr Dan
