Enterotoxemiais mainly an acute infectious disease caused by the organism Clostridium welchii, Type D, which is also responsible for enterotoxaemia or "pulpy kidney" in sheep. The organisms are normal inhabitants of the small intestine, but under favourable conditions they may produce a powerful toxin. The subsequent absorption of this toxin through the bowel wall generally produces a fatal toxaemia.
