Since its discovery in 2015, PCV-3 has been a concern for veterinarians and swine producers worldwide. Fully knowing the impacts that PCV-2 can have on a farm, a third member of the Porcine circovirus family should be well understood. In this episode, Dr. Clayton Johnson talk with Dr. Fabio Vannucci about his work with PCV-3, different methods of testing, and how it presents itself in our swine herds.
Dr. Fabio Vannucci is an Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota. He received his DVM in 2006 in Brazil and his Master’s in Animal Pathology in 2009. His area of expertise includes food animal disease, diagnostics, and swine medicine and pathology, and lately, he has been focusing on Porcine Circovirus in the swine industry lately.
This week, we are sharing a literature review based on a collaboration between Drs. John Deen and Perle Zhitnitskiy and the animal welfare team at the University of Wisconsin River Falls, led by Dr. Kurt Vogel. In this open-access publication from the Journal of Translational Animal Science, the authors review the history of captive bolt euthanasia, best practices and current challenges faced by the swine industry including the euthanasia of mature swine.
