The article discusses how Yersinia pseudotuberculosis can cause ocular disease in goats. Other conditions associated with the organism include enterocolitis, mesenteric lymphadenitis and septicaemia. Details on the four cases identified by the British Veterinary Laboratories Agency (VLA) that involved the organism are also provided.
