UK - The UK's hog sector now has a new antibiotic to help pig producers in their fight against various respiratory diseases.

ECO Animal Health's Aivlosin contains innovative properties that help reach therapeutic levels within two hours of administrating the drug. Aivlosin is capable of fighting diseases such as swine dysentry, enzootic pneumonia and ileitis.

Trials were conducted and according to Farmers Weekly, they show that Aivlosin returned cost benefits of 35.46 a pig in the treatment of enzootic pneumonia, 34.61 a pig for ileitis and 90p a pig treated against swine dysentery.
