Diagnosis and Treatment of Swine Flu Disease Infection

Swine Flu Disease Infection Diagnosis and Treatment

The diagnosis and treatment of swine influenza is crucial in the production of pigs. Although the mortality rate of single infection is low, the occurrence of swine influenza may be secondary to other diseases, leading to an increase in the mortality of pigs and affecting the economic benefits of breeding.
Therefore, in the breeding production, farmers must strengthen the prevention of swine influenza, scientific feeding management to ensure the health of pigs.

Swine influenza is an acute, infectious respiratory disease of pigs. The disease is sudden and often breaks out in the entire group in 1 to 3 days. The temperature of the sick pigs rises to 40 to 42 ° C, and he is depressed. He often lies on the side of the pen and is unwilling to move.

Most sick pigs breathe faster, accompanied by coughing, and a small number of sick pigs have flushed skin all over the body, and viscous liquid flows out of the eyes and nose. 
When there is no complication, the speed of recovery will take approximately one week. 

If the diseased pig's resistance decreases and secondary infections with other bacteria (such as Pasteurella, Streptococcus, etc.), the condition will worsen, and bronchopneumonia will occur and cause death. Autumn and winter is a high incidence period, but can be spread throughout the year.

What is the Precaution against Swine Flu?

When the disease occurs on the pig farm, the affected pigs should be quarantined immediately. The pig pens, tableware, and pig troughs contaminated by the sick pigs must be completely cleaned. Do not let the herds crowd together. Sweep clean and keep dry.

In the season of frequent diseases, the introduction of breeding pigs from other places should be avoided as much as possible. The isolation and quarantine work should be strengthened during the introduction. Poultry, especially waterfowl, should not be kept within the scope of the pig farm.

The use of electrolytic multi-dimensional drinking water during the treatment process can promote the recovery of sick pigs. The isolated pigs should be optimized for nursing and the sick pig house should be hygienic and dry. The heat preservation performance is good.

Let's look at a Swine Flu case together

When a farmer alternates between winter and spring, pigs often have sudden onset. Regardless of age and sex, the respiratory symptoms are obvious.

The farm owner Zhang Mou raised 67 pigs and 17 of them became ill one after another. Among them, one died. The sick pig's body temperature increased, his spirits were depressed, his appetite decreased, his muscles and joints ache, his breathing was short. , Purulent secretions, congestion and redness of the eye conjunctiva, constipation.

Analysis of Swine Flu Conditions

 When the season changes, the weather changes erratically, the temperature rises and falls, and the immunity of the pig body declines, causing the disease to become prevalent. 

It is recommended that farmers regularly disinfect the pig house with 10% - 20% fresh lime milk or 2% - Disinfect contaminated enclosures, utensils, food troughs, etc. with 5% bleaching powder. 

Keep the enclosures clean and hygienic, at the same time carry out regular deworming, improve body immunity, pay attention to improving feeding management conditions, strengthen feeding management, and replenish vitamin-rich feed.

In the climate change season, we must keep the house well ventilated, try to avoid stress reactions, and reduce the chance of disease infection.

The prevention of swine diseases is more than the treatment. I will not explain the specific treatment methods here. The main reason is that the farmers must master a set of treatment ideas and directions for swine influenza.

Swine-Flu Troubles


Double-pronged injection and mixing.

Vaccine immunization is of little significance for the prevention of swine influenza. The best preventive measure is to strengthen management and comprehensive prevention.
The treatment of this disease can be combined with Chinese medicine, antibiotics and symptomatic drugs, which can greatly shorten the course of treatment and reduce economic losses.

H1N1 Swine Flu

In addition, symptomatic treatment to prevent secondary infections. Antipyretic analgesics and antibiotic drugs such as Analgin, Angibilin, Penicillin, etc. are available. These drugs have no effect on the virus, mainly antibacterial, prevent secondary infection, and promote the early recovery of sick pigs.

Herpes Virus Infections Biological Traits Immunity and Pathogenicity

Infections Biological Traits Pathogenicity of  Herpes Virus Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a typical representative of herpes virus. It is named because herpes simplex occurs in the acute phase of infection.  It can cause a variety of human diseases, such as gingivostomatitis, keratoconjunctivitis, keratoconjunctivitis, encephalitis, and reproductive system infections and newborn infections. After infecting the host, a latent infection is often established in nerve cells. After activation, asymptomatic detoxification will occur. The chain of transmission will be maintained in the population and it will circulate repeatedly.
