TRAUMATIC reticuloperitonitis, colloquially referred to as ‘hardware’ or, more recently, ‘tyre wire’ disease, has become increasingly common and is particularly challenging to manage because the clinical presentation is often vague.

It also suggests some preventive measures that may be easily implemented on‐farm.
