Porcilis PCV M Hyo
porcine circovirus type 2 ORF2 subunit antigen / Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae inactivated
An overview of Porcilis PCV M Hyo and why it is authorised in the EU
Porcilis PCV M Hyo is a veterinary vaccine used to protect pigs against two separate infections, caused by porcine circovirus and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae.
- Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) infections can produce clinical signs such as weight loss or failure to grow, enlarged lymph nodes, difficulty in breathing, diarrhoea, pale skin and jaundice (yellowing of the skin).
- Infection with the bacterium Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in pigs causes a disease of the airways called enzootic pneumonia. Affected pigs often have a cough and fail to thrive.
Porcilis PCV M Hyo contains porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) subunit antigen (a protein derived from part of the virus) and an inactivated (killed) strain of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae bacteria.
