Academic Journal
The article presents various cases of fasciolosis in livestock in Scotland. According to the diagnosis of Scottish Agricultural College Consulting: Veterinary Services (SAC C VS), the main cause of the animal disease was the climatic change which leads into respiratory tract diseases, alimentary tract disorders and nervous system abnormalities in cattle, sheep, pig and dairy cows. Information regarding the possible outbreak of diseases due to climatic condition is also presented.
