Swine vaccines: heading for latin america
In June, join us at the IPVS World Congress in Brazil. We are sharing with swine professionals the latest scientific data on porcine circovirus as well as our preventive approach to swine health, which emphasizes vaccination tools and updated technology.
The congress of the International Society of Swine Veterinary Medicine brings together international specialists in swine health every four years. After the last few years of pandemic, we are delighted to finally be able to meet our partners and colleagues in the industry, from June 21 to 24, 2022 in Rio de Janeiro, where this 26th edition is taking place.
Porcine circovirus at the center of our participation in IPVS 2022
During these four days, our teams will welcome professionals of the swine industry on our booth which focuses on one of the pillars of our preventive approach to swine health: vaccination. On June 23, we are organizing a symposium in collaboration with veterinary experts to share the latest updates on the evolution of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) genotypes. Present in most pig populations worldwide, this virus causes significant losses in farms and vaccination remains the best way to limit its impact.
"The IPVS is a major event for professionals in the swine industry seeking the latest scientific information. We will contribute to this by presenting our innovative solutions at the Virbac Symposium on June 23, organized with the collaboration of renowned experts in swine health”, says Leonardo Watté of the Virbac Brazil team.
Putting our global and innovative approach at the service of a more sustainable breeding
Our approach to swine health aims to better take into account animal welfare in breeding, with an emphasis on prevention. Vaccination is one of our pillars to prevent infectious diseases and promote sanitary balance in pig farms, by reducing the number of affected animals and mortality. We propose a transversal management of diseases, combining services and medicines, and support the reasoned use of antibiotics, only when they are necessary. We encourage individual treatment and, with the support of new technologies, help veterinarians and farmers to treat at the right time in order to better control dosages, limit treatments and ensure better traceability.
