Parvovirus infection in pigs may cause returns to service, mummified foetuses, stillbirths and small litter sizes. Not all these clinical signs may be evident in individual pigs or piggeries.
Reproductive losses occur when sows or gilts are infected in the first 55 days of pregnancy. There are no other signs of infection in pigs. The impact of the infection depends on the stage of pregnancy and the level of pre-existing immunity in the sow or gilt.
Non-pregnant females, grower pigs or boars exposed to the disease show no signs of illness, but they can be a source of infection to susceptible pregnant female pigs.
Other diseases may cause reproductive problems in pigs. Veterinary advice should be sought to ensure a correct diagnosis.
2mL subcutaneously at the base of and immediately behind the ear in pigs of all ages.
This product can be stored and used for up to 30 days after first opening. On each subsequent reuse, swab the opening with a suitable disinfectant (for example, methylated spirits) both before and after using. A sterile needle must be used each time product is removed. Store unused material upright, at 2°C to 8°C (refrigerated) and in the original cardboard packaging to protect from light.
Ideally, in previously unvaccinated herds all breeding females and boars should be vaccinated twice, once at 8-10 weeks prior to mating and again 2-4 weeks prior to mating (an interval between vaccinations of 4-8 weeks). This should be followed by a booster dose every six months or when piglets are weaned.
In a routine vaccination program gilts should receive two doses four to six weeks apart. The first dose should be administered at around 20 to 24 weeks of age (i.e. after maternal antibody has declined). Subsequent booster doses should be given as recommended above for sows.
All introduced gilts and sows should receive two doses, four to six weeks apart and before mating.
While parvovirus does not cause obvious disease in boars they may be temporarily infected and become a possible source of infection for other pigs. For maximum herd protection it is recommended that boars receive two doses of vaccine (4 to 6 weeks apart) and booster doses every six months.
