Ovine Progressive Pneumonia Virus (OPP) and Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis Virus (CAE) Ovine Progressive Pneumonia (OPP) is a slowly progressive viral disease. Most animals do not show signs of OPP, but if they do it's usually after 2 years of age due to the long incubation period of the virus. Symptoms include, but are not limited to:
  • Weight loss, despite normal appetite
  • Increased breathing effort at rest/animal tires easily
  • Secondary bacterial infection
  • Fever, cough, lethargy, and nasal discharge
  • “Hard bag” - an enlarged, firm udder with reduced or no milk flow
  • Unsteady gait, twitching, or stumbling
  • Hind limb or total paralysis
Once infected, animals remain infected for life. Flocks infected with OPP can have lowered production efficiency because of early culling, decreased milk production, and lower weaning weights.
