Veterinary respiratory disease resulting from different types of bacteria (bacteria, viruses, weak immune system, temperature fluctuations and improper ventilation are the few factors responsible for causing veterinary respiratory diseases. Due to veterinary respiratory diseases, it is leading to high mortality rates of animals and causing economic losses. For instance, the bovine respiratory disease is most common in cattle and swine respiratory disease in pigs. Bovine respiratory disease mostly caused by the bacterial agents Pasteurella multocida, Histophilus somni, Mycoplasma bovis, and Mannheimia haemolytica. Various medicines are available in the market to treat Veterinary respiratory diseases. Most commonly used drugs to treat veterinary respiratory diseases are antimicrobial agents, Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s), Bronchodilators, Mucolytic agents, Oral rehydration fluids, and immunomodulators. However, treatments are becoming ineffective owing to increase in bacterial, viral resistance in the animals and lack of proper diagnosis are significant factors resulting increase in veterinary respiratory diseases. Hence newer drugs are coming into the market to treat veterinary respiratory disease conditions. In 2011, Merial (Boehringer Ingelheim), launched Zactran (Gamithromycin) to treat and control bovine respiratory disease conditions. In 2008, Zoetis (Pfizer), got EU approval for Draxxin® (tulathromycin) to treat Haemophilus parasuis (Glässer’s disease) in pigs, the uniqueness of the drug is it acts for ten days this intends to reduce the frequent dosage to the animals. In 2015, Ceva group launched respiratory vaccine to prevent from Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infections. To decrease the antibacterial resistant animals researchers are exploring new therapeutic approaches like bacteriophage therapy and bacterial peptides to treat veterinary respiratory disease conditions.
