Porcine Pleuropneumonia

Pleuropneumonia in pigs is still one of the major threats in many countries worldwide, influencing significantly the economic balance of the farm.

This disease, due to Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (Ap), is responsible for important losses caused by high mortality during the outbreaks (up to 15%), due to the fact the disease usually affects pigs in the second half of the growing period (the loss of heavy pigs is always more costly to the farmer), the necessary treatments and the fact the performances are affected (lower growth but mostly increased feed conversion ratio).

A better understanding of the pathogen, of the role of immuity and of the methods on how to indentify problematic farms or batches, and not only problematic individuals, can help us to take the correct decisions in applying the reasonable preventive measures.

So Ceva Animal Health Vietnam has the honour of providing the timely and useful informations relating to porcine pleuropneumonia to support the expert knowledge and suggest some solutions that can be applied.


In the modern world, pertinent information is critical in order to be successful in any kind of business. And the swine industry is not also an exception, so one of the most challenging activities for the farm owners is to be resourceful and updated which has become mandatory.

For this reason, Ceva Animal Health Vietnam has the honour of presenting to customers the informations about the common diseases in pig, like below:
