The plant, Matricaria nigellifolia, was dosed to 2 sheep to reinvestigate whether or not sheep are susceptible
to pushing disease ("stootsiekte"). Each sheep received a total dose of 370 g/kg of the milled, dried plant
from a batch that had caused pushing disease in cattle when given at doses as low as 10 g/kg. Neither of the sheep developed clinical disease over the trial period of 60 days, and necropsies revealed no macro- or microscopical lesions. Sheep are apparently resistant to pushing disease, which supports previous findings.
