OSTIS | Swine Health and Diseases Control


Description
Lesson 1 - Principles of Swine Disease Control

Our purpose is to share with others our years of experience in veterinary medicine and pig production so that we can help others to understand as fully as possible the pig and pig production and control diseases and problems that commonly arise. This module will familiarize the student with fundamental concepts of swine disease. Those who complete this module will be able to understand how and why diseases occur and what can be done to control them by applying these fundamental concepts. This module consists of six topics.

Lesson 2 - Piglet Enteric Disease: Diagnosis, Management, and Control

Piglet diarrhea is perhaps the most commonly encountered disease in pig production. However, big farms do not have to tolerate piglet diarrhea problems, and there are technologies available to completely control piglet diarrhea. This module will cover the common causes of piglet diarrhea, their diagnosis, treatment, and prevention in detail.

Lesson 3 - Transboundary and Emerging Diseases Of Swine

Transboundary diseases are those that cause generally severe epidemic diseases in pig populations and have been eliminated or never occurred in some geographical regions but in modern times can be spread from their native areas to regions that had not experienced them before with severe consequences on pig health and mortality. The migration of humans and the trade in animal products and animal feedstuffs has become globalized such that transboundary diseases are of significant concern in our time. Emerging diseases are often called new or novel diseases and may arise inside a geographical area without any real contribution from classical transboundary activities.

Lesson 4 - Managing the health of the Sow and Swine Reproduction

It is quite obvious that the production of pigs begins with reproduction and reproduction begins with the sow. Many of our diseases that affect pig production are vertically transmitted and therefore arise with the sow and are passed to the piglet. There are specific reproductive diseases of swine that can seriously interfere with reproduction. The management of the sow to reduce the impact of potential diseases on reproduction and production will be discussed in several topics.
