CANADA - Nearly every pig in Canada receives a vaccine for protection against porcine circovirus (PCV), and now swine producers have a new option for efficacious protection with the registration of Fostera PCV from Pfizer Animal Health.

FosteraTM PCV is labelled for use as an aid in preventing viraemia and an aid in the control of PCV2-related lymphoid depletion for pigs three weeks of age and older. Fostera PCV provides four months of immunity against PCV in a single 2-mL dose.

Walter Heuser, DVM, Swine Business Unit Director for Pfizer Animal Health, said: "Fostera PCV offers Canadian swine veterinarians and producers a new choice for long-lasting, consistent protection against PCV. Additionally, with our new one day of age claim for RespiSure-ONE®, we provide an innovative mycoplasma and circovirus vaccination programme, which gives veterinarians and their producers the flexibility to vaccinate for these key pathogens before disease challenge, giving the pigs the best coverage possible."

Manufactured with the highest quality standards, Fostera PCV is backed by a sales and technical team dedicated to serving the Canadian swine industry, a unique producer loyalty programme, and industry leading Pfizer training programmes to improve on-farm productivity and herd health.

Fostera PCV is available exclusively through Canadian veterinarians.
