14/05/2019: Confirmed cases of Swine Dysentery in Scotland

Several cases of swine dysentery have been confirmed in the north-east and the source of the infection remains unclear.

You are advised to take immediate precautions to minimise the risk of infectious material coming onto your farm. This bacteria is spread by physical contact so the big risks are incoming pigs, vehicles, people and equipment. Make sure you have ample disinfectant and consider increasing strength in cold weather. Attached are three information sheets giving more detailed advice.

Please contact your vet & the Scottish Pig Disease Control Centre on 01466 705247 if you suspect any symptoms as working together and rapid communication greatly increase our chances of containing the spread.
