DURAND, Reina; BULNES, C; MONTALVO, J e SARDINAS, R. ADENOMATOUS MULTINODULLAR COLLOID GOITER IN A BOVINE BULL SIRE: REPORT OF A CASE. Rev Salud Anim. [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.2, pp. 133-135. ISSN 0253-570X.
In order to study a bovine bull sire of high genetic value having a progressive decrease of the body weight, the behavior of this parameter was recorded during two years. Periodic clinical evaluations were carried out until the sacrifice of this animal due to not being recovered. The anatomorphological study showed the presence of tissue changes in the thyroid glands being in correspondence with the adenomatous multinodullar colloid goiter. This was associated with the decrease of the body weight in such animal.
