Aujeszky's disease outbreak



Aujeszky's disease outbreak



New Zealand Veterinary Journal 35(3): 37



The first outbreak in the Auckland area is described. The disease is considered to be spreading in the North Island of New Zealand. In June 1986, sows in a breeding and fattening piggery holding 200 sows became inappetent with temperatures between 37.6 and 40.5 degrees C. Some farrowed a few days early, with some stillbirths. Piglets had diarrhoea and high mortality rate; meningoencephalitis indicated Aujeszky's disease, confirmed by positive serological titres in recently farrowed sows. Movement control was instigated allowing exit only for slaughter. Over 6 weeks there was 80% piglet mortalty (250 deaths) and the lost profit was $12 000, including $6000 as potential revenue from 30 sows. By 8 weeks the unit was back to normal and by 5 months the movement control was relaxed.
