Conference on Porcine Dermatitis and Nephropathy Dermatitis Syndrome at AMVECAJ 2021-08-30
On August 26, Dr. David Díez gave a lecture on Porcine Dermatitis and Nephropathy Syndrome in the cycle of conferences organized by the Association of Veterinary Doctors Specialists in Pigs of Alto Jalisco (AMVECAJ).
Porcine Dermatitis and Nephropathy Syndrome (SDNP) affects pigs and was first described in 1993 in the United Kingdom. It is characterized by the sudden appearance of lesions on the skin and kidneys of animals.
Different possible causative agents have been described: It has been related to porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), although its pathogenic involvement in SDNP has not been effectively demonstrated.
Even so, experience in the field indicates that, in diseased animals, most of the sera are positive for Actinobacillus suis (30% positive in diseased animals, out of a total of 474 samples processed). Therefore, it can be determined that there is a great relationship between this bacterium and this syndrome.
The infection produces an immunodeficiency situation that allows the appearance of secondary diseases and, therefore, derived economic losses for the farms.
During the conference the course of the disease, the diagnosis, its treatment and also prevention tools were shown, with the aim of improving the competitiveness of farms.
Use of pronutrients as a natural immunostimulant
One of the prevention methods presented during the talk was the use of natural immunostimulants, which provides greater resistance to diseases. In addition, its use complements the vaccination programs used.
Alquernat Inmuplus, a product developed by Biovet S.A., is a natural immunostimulant based on active molecules of botanical origin with a metagenetic effect, the pronutrients. The product helps to improve the functioning of the immune system of the animals and the resistance to diseases such as the Porcine Dermatitis and Nephropathy Syndrome and, consequently, improves the productive performance of the farms.
In short, it is a natural solution that can be of great help in pig farms where this syndrome prevails, since it reduces its severity and partially prevents the losses derived.
