Porcilis PCV M Hyo

Porcilis® PCV M Hyo is a new ready-to-use (RTU), one-dose combination vaccine that protects your pigs from both porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyo) throughout the critical grow/finish period.

A single 2-mL intramuscular dose starting at 3 weeks of age is all the protection your pigs need. The convenient formulation, which does not require mixing, saves labor and reduces the number of injections given to piglets.

As the first RTU combination PCV2 and M. hyo vaccine approved in Europe, it provides dual protection with less work.

Porcilis PCV M Hyo

Porcilis PCV M Hyo reduces:

  • PCV2 viremia
  • PCV2 virus load in lungs and lymphoid tissues
  • Virus shedding caused by PCV2 infection
  • Lung lesions caused by M. hyo infection
  • Loss of daily weight gain during the finishing period following infection with M. hyo and/or PCV2 (as observed in field studies)

Onset of immunity: 2 weeks after vaccination

Duration of immunity: 22 weeks after vaccination

Onset of immunity: 4 weeks after vaccination

Duration of immunity: 21 weeks after vaccination

Vaccinate pigs by the intramuscular route in the neck. A single dose of 2 mL in pigs starting at 3 weeks of age.
