TETANUS

Tetanus is an acute wound toxicosis of animals caused by Clostridium tetanus and is characterized by damage to the nervous system, reflex excitability and convulsive muscle contraction without impaired consciousness.

The causative agent lives mainly in soil containing manure. There is evidence that pathogenic clostridia, multiplying in the intestines of animals, are excreted into the external environment along with feces. Infection often occurs with scratches, wounds and other injuries. Cats have natural resistance to tetanus bacteria, and their disease is extremely rare.

Symptoms: characteristic muscle cramps. In the local form of the disease, first convulsions cover the muscles of the head, and then extensor extremities.
The generalized form of the disease is characterized by spreading limbs, an elevated tail, an elongated head and neck, the skin on the forehead is folded, motionless eyes and clenched jaws.

The diagnosis is made by a veterinarian. Treatment should be started as soon as possible. Anti-tetanus serum, antibiotics and sedatives are administered to animals within 7-9 days. Subcutaneously - multivitamins, intramuscularly or intravenously - gamavit.

Phytotherapy. Immunostimulatory collection: Manchurian aralia (roots) 15 g, safflower levzea 15 g, hawthorn (fruits) 15 g, cinnamon rose hips (fruits) 15, medicinal calendula (flowers) 10, trident series (grass) 10 g, chokeberry (fruits) 10 g, large plantain (leaves) 10 g.

TETANUS

  1. Tetanus
    Tetanus is an acute infectious disease caused by the action of the toxin secreted by the bacillus of Nicolaera (Clostridium tetani), a microorganism that can remain viable for many years while in the ground. This bacillus easily penetrates the human body through a wound, especially if dirt enters the wound. See the article SHOOTS, taking into account that the metaphysical meaning of tetanus
  2. Tetanus
    Tetanus is an acute toxemia caused by the action of exotoxin (tetanospasmin) produced by the bacteria Clostridium tetani. The toxin is produced by the vegetative forms of the microorganism at the place of its penetration into the tissues of the body, and then enters the central nervous system and is fixed there. Etiology. The causative agent of tetanus is an obligate anaerobic, thin gram-positive motile
  3. TETANUS
    Tetanus [Greek - Tetanus (curing); English - Lockjaw] - an acute, non-contagious wound toxicoinfectious disease of mammals of animals, birds and humans, characterized by increased reflex excitability, convulsive tonic convulsions of the muscles of the body under the influence of the toxin of the pathogen (see color insert). Historical background, distribution, hazard and damage.
  4. Tetanus
    Tetanus is an acute infectious disease characterized by tonic tension of skeletal muscles and periodic generalized seizures, which is associated with damage to the motor structures of the central nervous system by the toxin of the pathogen. The causative agent of tetanus has the ability to produce the strongest exotoxin, which is associated with clinical manifestations
  5. TETANUS (TETANUS)
    Tetanus is an acute wound infectious disease of animals and humans, characterized by damage to the nervous system, reflex excitability and convulsive contraction of the muscles of the body without impaired consciousness. Etiology. The causative agent of tetanus is widespread in nature, there are many in the soil of gardens and vegetable gardens, in manure. There is evidence that it multiplies in the intestines of animals, with their feces

    Scope of examination 1. Tetanus is an acute infectious disease characterized by toxic damage to the nervous system, manifested by tonic convulsions. The causative agent of the disease is the anaerobic spore-forming bacillus of Clostridium tetani. 2. Entrance gates are wounds or other injuries to the skin and mucous membranes, including burns, frostbite, abrasions, criminal abortions,

  9. Tetanus
    Tetanus is an infectious disease caused by the neurotropic toxin of anaerobic tetanus bacillus, characterized by attacks of tonic seizures. In newborns, the infection penetrates through the umbilical wound, in older children through any wound, especially a contaminated one. Extremely dangerous contaminated ground punctured and lacerated wounds with crushed tissues, due to the danger of anaerobic

    Harry H. Beaty Definition. Tetanus is an acute, often fatal, disease caused by endotoxin produced by bacteria entering the wound (Clostridium tetani). Generalized increase in rigidity and convulsive spasms of skeletal muscles are typical for it. Etiology. Tetanus bacillus is strictly anaerobic gram-positive motile
