Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP) Webinar

The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC), launched by the National Pork Board in 2015 solely with Pork Checkoff funding, continues to focus efforts on prevention, preparedness, and response to novel and emerging swine disease for the benefit of US swine health.

SHIC and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) will host a webinar on Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP) on February 1.

APP cases have been increasing at the Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Lab (ISU VDL). Multiple practitioners in the field report resurgent clinical outbreaks of APP, which have resulted in increased morbidity and mortality in production systems where it was previously well controlled. Collectively, the increase in APP cases and practitioner concern suggested the need for wider discussion and a SHIC webinar on management strategies for APP.
