Swine flu (Swine Influenza) (SI) is an acute, febrile, highly-contact infectious disease caused by the swine flu virus. As the weather continues to be hot and sultry in summer, it is very easy to be endemic and cause large economic losses.

 

1. Establish a strict epidemic prevention system. Large-scale breeding farms shall implement closed management, establish and improve and strictly implement veterinary health and epidemic prevention systems to prevent the introduction of foreign epidemic sources.

 

2. Strengthen prevention and timely diagnosis and treatment of sick animals. Sick pigs should be treated symptomatically with antipyretic and analgesics in time, and injected with antibiotics to prevent secondary infections; strengthen pig breeding management, and timely supplement green vitamin-rich, clean and juicy green feed.

 

3. Improve feeding management conditions. In the changing seasons of temperature and the severe weather of overheating or coldness, special attention should be paid to strengthening the management of pig herds, keeping the pigsty clean and hygienic, keeping warm in winter and preventing heatstroke and cooling in summer. Regular disinfection of the breeding environment and regular deworming of the herd. Under intensive feeding conditions, the feeding density should be reasonable to prevent crowding of pigs. In areas where pad (step) lap breeding is implemented, advanced and hygienic breeding management methods should be adopted to change the traditional feeding habits of pad (step) laps.

 

4. Strengthen the improvement of pig herd quality, prevent the generation of stress, usually add immunity-improving drugs such as Jianliyuan to feed to improve herd's disease resistance.
