Treatment

  • There is no treatment available but antibiotic medication to control secondary bacteria in a new outbreak could be considered such as:
    • 600-800g of CTC or OTC in the breeding ration for 3-4 weeks as advised by the veterinarian.
  • Vaccination. This is the key action to take. As soon as disease is identified all breeding stock should be vaccinated with a gene deleted vaccine to mitigate the effects and reduce spread of the virus.
