Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., announced the implementation of a program for monitoring circovirus disease program. The company's MAGIC program will help swine producers and veterinarians identify, assess, and monitor several disease risk factors related to porcine circovirus associated diseases (PCVAD).

MAGIC is a comprehensive survey of a producer's swine health program to establish a benchmark for disease status, which includes diagnostic screenings.

"This program will help veterinarians and producers in the field better understand the dynamics of the problem. In turn, we can then distribute and place products appropriately so it's a win/win situation," says Gary Robertson, respiratory product manager for Boehringer Ingelheim.
