Bordetellosis(410) Bordetella bronchiseptica is a bacterium found in most if not all pig populations. Some strains cause a mild and non progressive rhinitis that heals spontaneously. The disease is clinically and economically of no consequence. However if toxigenic pasteurella are present in the herd then a combination of the two organisms can produce severe disease. (PAR)
Bordetella bronchiseptica can also be a secondary opportunist invader of the respiratory system.
