Treatment

  • Individual breeding females or boars showing acute illness, and raised temperatures, particularly with increased respiratory rate should be treated with broad spectrum antibiotics for three days.
  • Suitable medicines would include penicillin/streptomycin, long-acting OTC or synthetic penicillins such as amoxycillin. If the illness is severe then medicate the drinking water with either CTC or OTC at a level of 25g (100% pure) per 1000kg of live weight per day, for five days.
