Bottle jaw can be a sign of Johne's disease
Line "Bottle jaw", also called submandibular edema, is a sign very typical of Johne's disease. The cause of bottle jaw is a lack of protein in the serum, particularly albumin, due to the decreased function of the intestine. Johne's disease is a protein-losing enteropathy. Parasitism and some other disease conditions in cattle can also cause bottle jaw.
