    • Salmonella enterica var. dublin is a host-adapted salmonella that causes a range of lesions in cattle, but is especially associated with fibrinonecrotic casts in the gallbladder. As a general rule, the gallbladder is a great organ to culture if salmonellosis is in your differential diagnosis for enteric or septic disease in ruminants.
