Current bacterial infections in sows as relevant for reproduction pathology a study of abortus etiology in gilts

Current bacterial infections in sows as relevant for reproduction pathology a study of abortus etiology in gilts

Veterinarski Glasnik 42(9): 567-571

The occurrence of abortion is relatively frequent (0.47%-3.76%) in the studied swine agglomerations on publically owned farms in Voivodina. Also, the percent of abortions related to total number of births is much higher (3-4 times) in the leptospirosis infected litters than in those free from such infections. Numerous bacterial species were detected and pointed out to as possible etiological factors of abortion in swine. Leptospires, and especially Leptospira pomona, were by far most commonly encountered, followed by other bacteria such as diplococci, streptococci, staphylococci, Brucella rhusiopathiae, listeriae, etc. Mixed bacterial infections were also registered. Virological examinations that accompanied those bacteriological revealed a high percentage of porcine Parvovirus and Aujesky's virus, thereby indicating a necessity of virological studies for the etiology of abortus in swine.
