Abstract

Descriptions of abortion in sheep and goat breeds, as well as in a rearing of cows. In all cases, miscarriages were observed in animals of all ages. The bacteriological tests were negative, while at the necropsy of the embryos found muscular dystrophy lesions, which were confirmed histologically. Delivering selenium in pregnant mothers was successful, as abortions were stopped and newborns were completely healthy [translated from Greek].
