Pseudomonas spp are an opportunistic flagellated Gram-negative bacteria that cause diseases in cattle worldwide.
This bacteria manages to evade the host by avoiding recognition by flagellin-specific pattern-recognition receptors.
Species which have been recorded as pathogenic to cattle include:
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Pseudomonas mendocina
