PPR Vaccines :

Peste Des Petits Ruminants (PPR) is an acute infectious viral disease of small ruminants (sheep and goats) characterized by fever, erosive stomatitis, conjunctivitis, gastroenteritis and bronco pneumonia. The disease is caused by paramyxovirus of the morbillivirus genus.Since there is no specific treatment for PPR, the disease can be controlled by carrying out preventive vaccination of sheep and goats against PPR.
