Sepsis, Failure of Passive Transfer, and Fluid Therapy in Calves…(Univ of FL)

Septicemia and Neonatal Infection

Infection and septicemia are significant causes of morbidity and mortality in newborn animals. Calves require adequate colostrum for passive antibody protection, because maternal immunity is not transferred through the placenta. The amount of exposure to the infecting agent and the neonate’s ability to modulate the infection through the immune system both affect the occurrence of septicemia.
