Pasteurella spp.: A Practical Summary for Controlling Mastitis

DASC-67P  Pasteurella  spp. are contagious pathogens that are seldom reported as a cause of bovine mastitis. Mastitis caused by Pasteurella  spp. usually appears as a thick, creamy-yellow, viscous secretion, sometimes with a foul odor. Pasteurella  spp. are Gram-negative and similar in structure to other coliform mastitis pathogens. Additionally, when grown on blood agar, Pasteurella  spp. have been found to have irregular, rough colonies that produce a musty odor.
