speculate that the kitten was immunocompromised due to insufficient transfer of passive immunity. No FIV or FELV tests were performed in this case to rule out the involvement of these viruses and any associated immunosuppression. A wide variety of

Proper colostrum management is well recognized as a vital step in preventing disease in neonatal calves, but failure of passive transfer of immunity continues to be a common problem in the US dairy industry. 1,2 Transfer of passive immunity is

The thickness and density of the bovine placenta prevent transfer of cells and immunoglobulin from the cow to the calf before birth. As a result, the calf is immunologically naïve at birth, and maternal transfer of passive immunity and immune
