Title: How to Treat Mastitis infections in Milk-Producing Sheep and Goats
Author: Mavrogianni, V.S.; Menzies, P.I.; Fragkou, I.A.; Fthenakis, G.C.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Mastitis, or inflammation of mammary glands and teats, is a worldwide issue that affects sheep and goats as well as dairy cattle. To reduce its negative impact and allow animals to recover and be protected from future infections, antimicrobial treatment needs to be quick and effective. Broadly acting medicines should be followed by targeted approaches. Treatment may fail due to incorrect medication or contamination. Treatment of mastitis can affect milk production and testing is necessary before milk can be sold from treated animals.
