Innovation Showcase 4.2: Viral and Bacterial Arthritis – A Tale of Two Pains

Bacterial and viral arthritis pose significant challenges in the poultry industry, impacting the health and productivity of birds. Bacterial arthritis arises from pathogens infiltrating joints, causing inflammation and decreased mobility. On the other hand, viral arthritis, primarily caused by avian reovirus and infectious bursal disease virus, targets the musculoskeletal system, often decreasing growth rates. Controlling bacterial and viral arthritis in poultry requires rigorous biosecurity measures, vaccination programs, and prompt veterinary intervention to minimize the impact on bird welfare and farm profitability. Hear Dr. Victor Palomino-Tapia present Viral and Bacterial Arthritis – A Tale of Two Pains.
