Respiratory function

Respiratory problems, together with diarrhoea, are the major disease problems among pigs. Natural defence mechanisms are present in the airways in order to eliminate invaders such as bacteria and viruses. If this is not effective, as in the case of lowered resistance and /or when larger numbers of germs invade the airways, pigs may contract pneumonia. A focused approach is required; this begins with detecting the pathogen. It is also important to look at the climate in the building and the accommodation of the animals.

Various factors may play a role when there are respiratory problems:

  1. one or more infections of the airways;
  2. lowered resistance
  3. building climate and accommodation.

When an infection is the cause, bacteria,  viruses and /or parasites may play a role.
