The beginning of an end for PED
Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) virus causes diarrhea and vomiting in pigs and piglets. While boars and sows typically recover from the virus, PED can be deadly in 50 to 100 percent of infected piglets.(1) Currently, there is no cure for it — only strict strategies and processes that the industry has developed in an attempt to see the beginning of the end of PED. You and your veterinarian are encouraged to use the SOURCE model, developed by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., to help minimize the impact of PED.
