Causes of diseases
Goose infirmities are a consequence of violations in the regimefeeding, conditions of detention (overheating, frostbite, bruises, poisoning, etc.). Infants, infectious, parasitic and fungal diseases are observed in young animals, and their symptoms appear at the age of 6-12 days. To prevent them, you must observe the following conditions:

Goslings and their treatment
Consider some diseases and methods of dealing with them.
Viral enteritis is a disease for whichcharacteristic lesions of the intestine, heart system, liver. This disease leads to the death of goslings up to 95% of the total number. They are infected through food, water, air, and the virus is transmitted from one bird to another.
Symptoms and preventive measures
Oppressed form of goslings, half-closed eyes, trembling,yawning, lack of appetite speak of malaise. The diseased birds are pieced together and mostly sleep, they have diarrhea with blood and a lag in growth.
To prevent this disease goslings are necessaryto vaccinate both adults (one and a half months before the laying of eggs), and young animals (at the age of 28 days). In a couple of weeks, you need to repeat the procedure.
Cholera or pasteurellosis is characterized by high mortality of the bird, when in a particularly acute disease, healthy goslings suddenly die. Sources of infection are the same as in the above case.
Symptoms of this disease goose and their treatment
Sluggish bird condition, mucus or foam secretionfrom nasal apertures and beak, temperature up to 43 degrees, gray, yellow or green diarrhea, thirst and lack of appetite. All this entails the death of the bird. This disease can take a chronic form, then adult geese begin to limp, and their wings hang.
In order to prevent the development of the disease,it is necessary to carry out vaccination, and if the goslings still get sick, then they will have to score those who have symptoms, and antibiotics and biomycin are prescribed for the rest for prevention.
Parasitic diseases, as a rule, have a chronic form and also cause considerable damage to the livestock. Exciters include small parasites, such as:
- tongs (Persian, chicken);
- Bedbugs (mostly bedding);
- parasites that feed on feathers and the upper layer of the skin.

For this patient, the goslings are treated with iodrine and dibromo. You also need to process the room.
This is not all diseases that are susceptible togeese. Many of them lead to 100% of birds' deaths, but it is important to warn them. Only then it will be possible to preserve the livestock or avoid the disease of goslings at all, and their treatment will be more effective if the above conditions of maintenance and feeding regime are observed.</ p>
