Abstract: 

Botulism is a zoonotic disease which has a worldwide distribution. The source of infection in livestock is usually carcasses of birds, domestic and wild animals. Rotten carcasses of animals are contaminated by Clostridium botulinum. The toxin of this bacteria leads to a fatal paralytic disease. This paper reports an outbreak of domestic animal botulism in the villages of Bushehr province in 2006. Intestinal contents of 10 cows, 15 goats and 12 sheeps that showed clinical signs were examined for presence of botulism’s toxin according to guideline of control disease center. Tests on autopsy samples and intestinal contents indicated the presence of botulinum toxin in affected animals and in autopsy studies rat carcass were found in for stomach of animals. To prevent botulism in drought conditions, modifying dietary deficiencies by use of phosphorus and protein supplements is recommended and sanitary landfill of carcasses is recommended to prevent contamination of other pastures.
