Abstract

Tapeworm infections in lambs are usually incidental, albeit there are anecdotal reports of heavy burdens causing morbidity or mortality (Elliott 1986; Dorchies 1999; Liu et al. 2019). This short correspondence describes a case of small intestinal torsion in a 5 week-old lamb attributed to Moniezia expansa infection. The clinical findings highlight knowledge gaps concerning M. expansa epidemiology, including the age at which lambs are most susceptible to tapeworm infections, host responses and potential impact within flocks.
