30 September 2016

GLOBAL - Actinobacillus Pleuropneumonia (App) is a bacteria which can cause severe respiratory disease in pigs. As one of the most dangerous pig killers, it is important that pig farmers have effective ways to control it.

In a new study, piglets that were challenged with App and treated with gamithromycin injectable solution (ZACTRAN®) had 100 per cent survival compared with 80 per cent survival in the control group. The treated piglets also had increased weight gain. 

You can watch more about the study and benefits of ZACTRAN in the video below.
