River Otters at Brevard Zoo Die of Necrotic Enteritis


Two otters, respectively aged four and six years, died of necrotic enteritis at the Brevard, FL. Zoo. According to a report in the October 13th AVMA Newsletter, the animals were infected with coccidiosis followed by clostridial enteritis approximately one week later.


It is evident that the combination of coccidiosis followed by clostridial enterotoxemia can result in mortality in carnivores following the same pathogenesis as in chickens.
