Notes

Natural disease occurs infrequently in pigs, sheep, and goats and has been reported in camels, elephants, horses, donkeys, yaks, and various species of deer and other wild ruminants.
The P. multocida serotypes that cause HS have not been recovered from human infections. However, because many serotypes of P multocida have the potential to infect people, appropriate precautions should be taken when dealing with suspected cases of HS or HS-like disease.
