Thread: Lung adhesion

  1. #1

    Lung adhesion

    Shot an otherwise fit and healthy old Muntjac buck this morning but it had massive lung adhesion with the left lung missing.




    What are the opinions on this?

    Please don't take this the wrong way - but you're no David Bailey!

    Honestly the safest answer to any of these lung questions is to ring the local animal health office and ask to speak to one of their vets. Take their advice.

    Lung things, or odd abscesses, particularly in a TB area, are TB until someone declares its not.

    Could have had pneumonia. Could have had a penetration of the chest leading to the massive adhesion formation. But I'm not ruling out TB from here.

    If DEFRA vet says not TB then you're fine.

    I would NOT be eating this carcase.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I know about the photography but i didn't realise I had a grubby fingerprint on my lense until I got back home

    Couldn't find a single swollen lymph node, and I checked twice. so the pluck got buried.

    Not planning on eating this one, made that decision before I'd got home!

    Agree with Apache

    Also, what about pleurisy? Does it get that bad?

    Alex- yes it can. See this sort of picture in some sheep with chronic pneumonia.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Being all one sided, I'd of thought car impact with maybe perforated lung?
    Just a wild guess. Look at the ribs, legs and spine on that side.
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    WIth Apache on this one. Bearing in mind another recent question on lymph nodes, if the question TB? is raised in your mind, you should report it.

    Just had another look and there is a small puncture wound under the front leg that side which might explain it, if thats what a collapsed lung looks like. Tried ringing DEFRA waited 2 hours for the call back from a vet but then had to go out, I'll try again tomorrow.....

    Called again today and was told a vet would ring me back, still waiting! They're obviously not concerned about it so it's going in the cat 1 bin and that will be an end to it!
