Reason for variability of vaccination protocols between swine farms?
Vx are used for the various diseases present - if the Dz does not exist on the farm, there is little reason to Vx
Components of atrophic rhinitis vaccine?
Bortetella bronchisepticum bactrin and Pasteurella multocida type D toxoid
Timing of E. coli and C. perf type C vaccines for primiparous prefarrowing?
2 vaccinations, 3 and 6 weeks prior to farrowing
Preweaning vaccines if weaned at 4 weeks of age or older?
Atrophic rhinitis and Erysipelas a week before and 2 weeks after weaning
Parvo Virus vaccine?
For a ubiquitous organism; colostral immunity can last up to 8 months - this interferes w/ vaccine response; Gilts should be exposed to sow feces early to obtain naturally acquired immunity
Pot bellied pig vaccines?
Erysipelas and AR vaccines 2x a year; Lepto and Parvo for breeding animals; Rabies annually; potentially mycoplasma
Streptococcus suis vaccine?
Dz of pigs in farrowing house and nursery; commercial Vx available, but may are autogenous; administration varies among manufacturers
Hemophilus parasuis vaccine?
Glasser's Dz - a disease in the nursery; vaccinate pigs 4 weeks of age or older
MLV should not be used in pregnant animals; virus will spread from vaccinated animals to non-vaccinated animals. Give this similarly to lepto and parvo to prevent reproductive losses
Sow and preparturient gilt deworming?
Perform prior to farrowing and in early gestation if animals are in a contaminated environment
Check when entering nursery and at weaning; @ 50-70lbs (grower area); @ 100-110lbs (finisher area); if finishers in contaminated area, again @ 150-170lbs
External parasite prevention in sows and preparturient gilts?
Before farrowng to reduce piglet exposure
