Abstract
The most recent knowledge about small ruminant mastitis is presented in this text. The authors point out the etiological, epidemiological and control aspects of mastitis by several pathogens, especially those due to Stophylococcus spp., which are the most prevalent pathogens responsible for intramammary infection in small ruminants. The public health impact of pathogens causing mastitis is also emphasized and the efficacy of diagnostic tools are discussed, especially bacteriological detection and determination of milk somatic cell counts (MSCC). Several mastitis control strategies are discussed, but milking procedures, teat dip disinfection and selective dry-off therapy are carefully reviewed, including the risk of contaminating milk through use of antibiotics and antibiotic detection.
