Canada: Streptococcus suis remains most commonly reported swine disease problem

Streptococcus suis, a bacterial infection, that primarily affects baby pigs to about eight to ten weeks old, continues to be the most common problem.

Thursday 6 November 2014 (3 years 8 months 10 days ago)

The manager of the Canadian Swine Health Intelligence Network reports step suis continues to top the list of infections swine veterinarians in Canada are dealing with.

Dr. Chris Byra, a swine veterinarian with Greenbelt Swine Veterinary Service and manager of components of CSHIN reports Streptococcus suis, a bacterial infection, that primarily affects baby pigs to about eight to ten weeks old, continues to be the most common problem.

Dr. Byra says trials have shown young piglets that are getting exposed to large amounts of bacteria have difficulty developing immunity. He says, while efforts are underway to develop a vaccine to protect pigs from this organism, in the past vaccines have not helped very much.
