Sheep & Goat Health

Scrapie

Scrapie is a fatal disease that affects the central nervous system of sheep and goats. There is no cure or treatment for scrapie.

It is not completely understood how scrapie is passed from one animal to the next. Sheep and goats are typically infected as young lambs or kids, though adult sheep and goats can become infected.
