MSD Animal Health said its triple action pig vaccine can control erysipelas, porcine parvovirus and leptospirosis, offering up to 12 months immunity.
Described as being the first of its kind, PORCILISEry+Parvo+Lepto offers protection against three of the biggest diseases that cause reproductive failures in pigs.
Alexandre Carvalho, business unit manager for pigs at MSD Animal Health, explained that this vaccine has the broadest protection against Leptospira on the market, offering protection against nine different serogroups including, Australis and Pomona.
“This vaccine also includes protection against the Tarassov serogroup, which is unique to the product,” he said.“It’s important to note that PORCILIS Ery+Parvo+Lepto can be used for mass vaccination and during pregnancy, which hasn’t been possible with previous products.”
He added: “We want to offer our customers solutions to enable them to feel confident about the protection of their herds.”
