The study found that initially, the affected animals showed anorexia, depression, recumbency and fever. In the next phase characterised by a swelling of the nasomaxillary and mandibular area and the animals becomes cachetic and had poor body condition and hair loss. It also investigated that the mortality of the affected animal was 80%.
