What does pneumonic pasteurellosis mean?

Bovine respiratory disease found in animals that
have been shipped or exposed to cattle recently
transported. The major agent responsible for the
disease is Mannheimia haemolytica and less
commonly, Pasteurella multocida or
Haemophilus somnus. All three agents are
normal inhabitants of the bovine nasal
pharyngeal mucosa but not the lung. They are
considered opportunistic pathogens
following physiological stress, and/or a
viral infection. The resulting bacterial
fibrinous bronchopneumonia is often fatal.
