    • In pigs Eryvac® vaccine is used to control both acute and chronic disease caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae (insidiosa) infection. The acute septicaemic form of the disease is manifested as either a sudden illness with fever, sometimes resulting in death, or red blotching of the skin, usually on the belly and often in a "diamond" pattern. The common sign in the chronic form of the disease is arthritis.
