Haemonchus contortus, also known as Barber’s pole worm, is a gastrointestinal parasite infecting small ruminants worldwide. WADDL offers the Haemonchus contortus fluorescent assay that can provide identification of Haemonchus contortus within 2-3 days of receiving the sample.
Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae is a respiratory pathogen of caprinae, including domestic sheep, domestic goats, bighorn sheep, and mountain goats. Learn more about testing and how WADDL can help protect your sheep and goat herds.
Caseous lymphadenitis (CL, occasionally abbreviated CLA) is a bacterial infection that can be found in sheep and goats and is caused by Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis resulting in superficial or internal abscesses and recurrent development of abscesses. Learn more about how it is spread and testing with WADDL.
Small ruminant lentiviruses (SRLV) are a group of closely related viruses that can cause chronic disease, including pneumonia, arthritis, encephalitis and mastitis, in multiple organ systems in goats and sheep. Learn more about how SRLV is spread and testing for the virus through WADDL.
Query or Queensland fever (Q fever) is a bacterium causing infection in a variety of domestic animal species, primarily goats, sheep, and cattle. Learn more about the disease, symptoms, transmission, and diagnosis and testing with WADDL.
WADDL uses a commercially available and licensed enzyme-linked immunoassay Pregnancy Test Kit from IDEXX Laboratories Inc. The test detects early pregnancy-associated glycoproteins as a marker for pregnancy. The test is validated internationally for use in cattle, sheep, goats, and buffalo.
Maintenance of a profitable livestock industry depends upon efficient animal reproduction. Diseases that interrupt pregnancy are costly, and control measures cannot be devised until the cause for the reproductive loss is accurately identified.
