coughing pig

Postby otjoe1 » Fri May 03, 2013 8:20 am

Seems like every year one of our pigs gets a bad cough the first few weeks we get it. We usually manage it with LA-200 if not we treat for worms with Ivermectin. Having same problem this year. Does anyone know if its safe to give both at the same time so we cover all bases at once? This year one has a cough and diarrhea. Thanks

I've seen it given at the same time BUT one shot on one side of the neck and the other shot on the other.

Do you know if the owner was on a different water type....like city vs well?

Are you guys using the same type of feed?

Was it hot when you transported the new pig home or exterme cold?

Was he on a different pen system then yours?

It is safe. Just follow the volume per injection site rules.

Thanks for the info. The La-200 cleared it up but I'll know in the future if I need to try both.

I have had similiar problems each year and I finally figured out what the problem was. My pen is outdoors and has a pig house with four enclosed sides and two doors that are open all the time. Each year when the pigs come in they would get a cough and I would be worried about them. This year same thing happened. When I had to move a female out to another pen because she had a prolapse . As soon as she was there (Which was a more open to airflow) she stopped coughing in 2 days. When I finally moved her back to the other pen she started coughing again. Last weekend when the pigs were in the house moving around I could see some dust from straw and dirt floor so I pulled a board off the sided of the house to allow more air flow and hosed down the dirt. In two days the cough was gone in all the pigs and they are running around. To me it did not seem like I had a bad dust problem but you may want to make sure you have some fans working help air flow to be sure. Hope my theory works for you but I don't know what your pen situation is.....Good luck.

We have the same problem. One out of four has a slight cough, after she gets up and move around she's fine. I am currently feeding the Moormans with the wormer in it. Just wondering how long after they finish the feed how long before the cough goes away? If it doesn't is it safe to give a shot of Ivomec right away? As always your input is greatly appreciated!
