    i have found similar gross and microscopic lesions in sheep. does this disease persists in ovine species? do you have any references.

      I have not been able to find published reports of Tyzzer’s in sheep. The 5th ed of Pathology of Domestic Animals mentions foals, calves, dogs, cats, and lab animals. I dont see why it couldn’t affect sheep.
