Scrapie is a fatal, degenerative disease affecting the central nervous system of sheep and goats. The name "scrapie" was derived from the characteristic scraping infected animals do to relieve itching. However, clinical signs vary widely and develop slowly. Ultimately, over a period of several years, as infection spreads and develops within a flock, the disease can render an operation economically unviable.
