Controling APP by Combining Management Procedures with tilmicosin (Pulmotil) Medication.

By Noel Kavanagh, Consultant. Partial depopulation programmes are now widely used as an aid to control of viral diseases such as PRRS, Aujeszky's disease and TGE. In the case of Aujeszky's disease vaccination is used to prevent shedding of the virus however in some circumstances, where virus shedding continues in spite of vaccination, depopulation of the "hot spot" eliminates the focus of virus circulation and facilitates eradication of the disease from the farm. Programmes based on similar principles have been used in France and Denmark for eradication of PRRS.
