Clinical Significance

Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious viral disease that affects both domesticated and wild cloven-hoofed animals, such as cattle, sheep, and pigs. The incubation period for FMD may range between 1 to 7 days. In extreme cases, this period may range from as little as 12 hours to a maximum of 14 days. Animals susceptible to the FMDV infection can be characterized by a vesicular condition of the buccal mucosa, feet, and mammary glands of females. Particle is taken into a cell of the host. The cell is then forced to manufacture thousands of copies of the virus, and eventually bursts, releasing the new particles in the blood. The virus is genetically highly variable, which limits the effectiveness of vaccination.
