Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia

Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is an infectious and highly contagious bacterial disease in cattle and water buffalo. It affects the lungs, causing respiratory distress, and can occasionally affect the joints. Various species are susceptible to the disease. CBPP has been reported in Asian yaks and in American bison. Sheep, wild bovids, camels, antelope, and goats are resistant to CBPP.

In Canada, CBPP is a reportable disease under the Health of Animals Act, and all cases must be reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
