How to use "Scrapie" in context?

Scrapie, or sheep dermadocosis, is an infrequent and stubborn parasitic disease of sheep and goats. While it is not considered a major agricultural pest, it can cause substantial economic losses if not effectively controlled. Scrapie is caused by a virus and is spread through contact with infected body fluids, dung, or fleas.

The virus is slow-acting and usually fatal to sheep and goats, although it can be treated if detected early. Affected animals may develop respiratory problems, seizures, disfigurement, and lesions on the skin and internal organs.
