Mycoplasma waits for no pig
|Dr. Ron White, Zoetis, and Dr. Joe Connor, Carthage Veterinary Service, discuss the benefits of early vaccination.
||Pigs vaccinated with RespiSure-ONE® at processing had no adverse effects in behavior compared to pigs not vaccinated at processing.
What others are saying
Four veterinarians share valuable insight into why they recommend vaccinating for mycoplasma while processing. Additionally, read what experts are saying in industry news.
Early vaccination is important:
- Pigs may be infected with mycoplasmal pneumonia during the first three weeks of life.1, 2
- Early vaccination helps reduce potential clinical disease in the nursery.3
Now you have the convenience of vaccinating at processing:
- The most flexible label claim on the market lets you decide what's best for your herd.
- One-dose administration saves time and labor.
When challenged, pigs vaccinated at one day showed reduced lung lesions, colonization and shedding:4
- RespiSure-ONE is demonstrated safe for use in day-old pigs.4
- Duration of immunity in 1-day-old pigs has not been established.
- 25-week duration of immunity when administered to pigs at 3 to 8 days of age.5
