African swine fever, classical swine fever, pseudorabies, influenza A virus in swine, etc. are some of the common swine diseases. Classical swine fever (CSF) is a highly contagious disease of swine that causes skin lesions, fever and convulsions, and ultimately culminates in death. Artificial immunization procedures can confer immunity against this condition. Diagnostic tests, such as direct and indirect immunofluorescence, ELISA and histology of the brain can be used to detect the disease. Swine vesicular disease (SVD) is another acute and contagious viral disease that is caused by the swine vesicular disease virus. It is typically characterized by fever, ulcers in the mouth and snout, feet and teats. This disease can infect pigs by exposure to feed containing lethal meal scraps, or infected fecal matter. Since no vaccine exists for this condition, various eradication measures are adopted such as quarantining infected areas, disposal and depopulation of infected pigs and disinfecting contaminated premises. This book covers in detail some existing theories and innovative concepts revolving around swine health. Some of the diverse topics covered in this book address the varied swine diseases that fall under this category. It is a vital tool for all researching or studying swine diseases as it gives incredible insights into emerging trends and concepts.
