Circovirus: What Has Changed and What to Expect
| Presented in English
The national Demeter veterinarian group has dealt with different cases of porcine circovirus type-2 (PCV-2) across Canada that has affected pigs early in the nursery resulting in high mortality. As a leader in swine health and production in the country, we will present a special interest webinar on circovirus disease and considerations for prevention. The webinar will touch on both PCV-2, which most herds are vaccinated for, and circovirus type 3, a potential emerging disease gaining some attention in both the United States and Canada. We hope this webinar will refresh everyone’s mind about circovirus disease and help to promote discussion on prevention and future actions.
