GLOBAL - Oral fluid testing is often carried out as it is a welfare friendly, convenient and cost-effective tool for disease monitoring in pigs.

In the future, there will likely be an increase in the number of oral fluid testings and Merial will continue to work as part of a network to improve the different methods. The network includes 18 laboratories from 13 countries.
