United states: investigations on Seneca Valley Virus infection that were found in the U.S. this summer

Although Seneca Valley Virus in swine is not considered to be a production limiting infection, the resemblance of its symptoms to Foot-and-mouth disease is cause for vigilance.

Wednesday 2 September 2015 (2 years 5 months 16 days ago)

According to Farmscape.ca, the executive director of the U.S. based Swine Health Information Center is investigating the identification of Seneca Valley Virus and Seneca Valley Virus infection that were found in the U.S. this summer.

For the most part Seneca Valley Virus is not a severe production disease. It can cause vesicles on the mouth and snout and cause vesicles on the coronary bands of the feet of pigs. Those vesicles and those lesions will look like Foot-and-mouth disease, so each one of those instances needs to have a foreign animal disease investigations done and done very quickly to ensure that we don't have an incursion of Foot-and-mouth disease.

Swine Health Information Center will be funding research aimed at identifying any changes in the Seneca Valley Virus or its pathogenicity, and developing improved diagnostic tools to make the differentiation of it from FMD quicker and more accurate and to learn more about its distribution in the U.S.
