The most common pathogens are:
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP)
Sometimes infections can be reduced by good husbandry, but in most cases antibiotic treatment is required.
Baytril® is highly effective against the organisms causing swine respiratory disease.
APP infections cause high fever, severe respiratory distress, and sometimes a blood-stained discharge from the nose and mouth. The mortality in young pigs can reach up to 50%, and the survivors have persistent cough and reduced growth. The onset of an APP infection is very rapid, and intervention with an antibiotic is a must.
Different Eradication Programs for APP
and Baytril® shows excellent efficacy in all of them
