Furunculosis - Symptoms and Treatment

Furunculosis is an infection where furuncles are present over a period of weeks to months. Species of Staphylococcus aureus are usually the causative agents. Furunculosis is systemic in nature as it travels through the bloodstream and affects all parts of the body, especially the vital organs. It will multiply rapidly in the bloodstream and cause small blood vessels to rupture, allowing the bacteria to spread to surrounding tissue.When allowed to advance to this stage, the disease is always fatal. Furunculosis is endemic in a number of Michigan waters but is not generally a problem in nature. In crowded hatchery settings, the disease can cause high mortalities if not recognized and treated at its onset. Medicated feed containing the antibiotic Terramycin or Romet are often effective in treating furunculosis.
