B. ovis is a Gram-negative coccobacillus from the Brucellaceae family. Along with Brucella melitensis, it is responsible for causing ovine brucellosis, which is a notifiable disease. All breeds of sheep are susceptible to brucellosis, which may cause considerable economic loss due to increased culling of rams, reduced lamb marking percentages and extended lambing seasons. The disease produces inflammation of the epididymis in rams and of the placenta in pregnant ewes. The infection of pregnant ewes leads to abortion and neonatal lamb deaths due to microscopic and macroscopic changes occurring in the placenta and fetus. Infection does not persist in nonpregnant ewes, but may persist for several months in pregnant ewes. This characteristic has an impact in the control of the disease.
