    “In adult ruminants, diarrhea is more likely to develop due to maldigestion and malabsorption secondary to infectious enteritis, whereas osmotic diarrhea is likely to develop secondary to carbohydrate engorgement.”

    Important differential diagnoses for infectious enteritis can be broadly classified into bacterial (salmonellosis, paratuberculosis, and Clostridium perfringens type A), viral (bovine viral diarrhea [BVD]virus, malignant catarrhal fever, and bovine coronavirus [BCoV]), and parasitic (coccidiosis and nematodiasis).” An in-depth discussion of each follows.
