    Swine Farming: The New Approach


    • Solutions to limit the impact of the main swine diseases
    • A global approach that emphasizes prevention
    • Encouraging good husbandry practices to better protect sows and piglets from disease



    The number of pigs in the world is close to 800 million, and they are found in many different places. Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), swine fever, and respiratory illnesses are among the common diseases that affect pig populations all over the world.

    These illnesses cause high mortality rates, slowed herd growth, and huge financial losses for farmers. Regardless of the type of farm, Virbac offers solutions to reduce the effects of these diseases with the continual goal of maintaining both the health of the animals and the efficiency of the farm.


    Virbac propose a cross-cutting disease management that combines field audits, services, vaccinations and medications. Our approach aims to better consider animal welfare in breeding, with particular emphasis on prevention through vaccination, micronutrients and improved reproductive management. We also support the rational use of antibiotics. Antibiotics are essential in some cases, for example when disease is already present in the herd. We encourage individualized treatment and help veterinarians and breeders use new technology to deliver treatments at the right time, better controlling dosages, limiting treatments and providing better traceability.


    Permitting a developing total populace to approach quality food while safeguarding creature wellbeing and prosperity suggests an important variation of reproducing procedures, to underscore counteraction. Immunization is one of the mainstays of our way to deal with forestall irresistible sicknesses and advance clean equilibrium in pig ranches, by diminishing the quantity of impacted animals and mortality. Essentially, the arrangement of mineral enhancements to help the metabolic and safe elements of the creature at key minutes in its day to day existence, like growth, decreases the effect of illnesses and limits the requirement for healing medicines.

    Answering today's challenges of swine farming

    EFFITIX® : Treat and Prevent Flea and Tick Infestations

    Last 2019, Virbac Philippines introduced Effitix®, an innovative parasiticde used to treat and prevent tick and flea infestations in dogs and cats. The advantages of this product described by the Global Marketing manager parasiticides.

    Over 70% of cats and dogs in Europe are affected by issues related to external parasites during the summer season1. Among the main effects: bites, itching and transmission of pathogens. There are two possible options when dealing with this nuisance: treatments, which reduce or even eliminate parasitic activity once the animal is affected; or prevention designed to reduce the risk of new infestation, for example by killing the parasites in the environment. 

    On average, owners treat their animals 3 to 4 times a year, highlights how much treatment has shaped habits. Prevention is key, since new parasites can come from the environment and not only from the animal. According to a French study conducted at the national veterinary school of Nantes2, 30% of cats seen for a consultation, even though they get treated, still present with flea problems! The solution? Combine prevention and treatment into the same product.


    Since July 2019, Virbac has made Effitix® Duo available to veterinarians; this is a spot-on fipronil-based and pyriproxifen-based solution for dogs and cats. Not only does this specific formula eliminate adult parasites once in contact with the animal, it also prevents their proliferation in the early stages of development in the domestic environment (eggs, larvae and subsequently nymphs). This is what experts and vets name integrated flea control.

  • Pet's Dental Care

    Virbac Dental Solutions: A Veterinary Quality Standards

    Bad breath is a common complaint of pets' owners but it can also be a sign of periodontal or digestive issues that can be painful for the pets.


    A pioneer in dental care for pets. Virbac has a 30 years of expertise in this  field and a wide range of scientifically proven products (dental kits, toothpaste, mouthwashes, dental chews) for veterinary clinics.

    As for humansm the causes of bad breath in dogs can be oral (tartar, plaque, bacteria...) or intestinal (gastrointestinal disorders, kidney problems, respirator, diabetes...). Bad breath is also one of the first signs of bad dental hygiene that can lead to more serious and painful disorders for the animal, such as gingivitis or periodontal diseases. It is therefore important to take care of the teeth of our four-legged companions.

    In addition, dental kit or chews may strengthen the bones and ligaments of the jaw and naturally contributes to a good health by stimulating the production of saliva.

  • Porcine Circovirus

    Control of Circovirus (PCV2)

    PCV2 is the primary agent of porcine circovirus-associated disease (PCVAD) which causes severe economic loss worldwide.

    PCV2 infection is required for PCVAD expression; however, co-infection with other viruses or bacteria can cause clinical PCVAD in the herd or increase the number of affected pigs.

    Several pathogens have been identified that increase the trend and progression of the disease, including: Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), Porcine parvovirus (PPV), Porcine tissue torsion (TTV), swine influenza virus (SIV) and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and many other species.

    The first global PCV2 vaccine formulated with the d genotype 

    SUIGEN PCV2 is an inactivated vaccine against de porcine circovirus, it is the first available commercial vaccines (among international players) containing the d-genotype which is today the predominant genotype on the field in most regions of the world.


    • d-genotype: The first global PCV2-2d vaccine formulated with the d-genotype to better fit predominant field challenges.
    • Whole inactivated virus: Complete antigenic offer to stimulate the immune system.
    • Sow vaccination: Innovative vaccination protocol that will include sow vaccination and diagnostic testing to adjust vaccination date of piglets.
    • High Antigenic Titer: And vaccination management to ensure vaccination success.


    ---- A solution to fight against systematic but not compulsory losses ----

    PCV2 vaccines were able to counteract almost completely the devastating effect of the disease, with a dramatic decrease in mortality and clinical signs related to wasting.

    Piglets vaccination allows:

    • Significant reduction of PCV-2 prevalence and clinical severity
    • Lesser mortality and cull rates 
    • Improvement of ADWG and feed conversion rate
    • Decrease in the frequency if co-infections 
    • Reduction of viral-induced microscopic PCV-2-SD-like lymphoid lesions and viral load in tissues and blood.

    A number of infectious agents have been described as potential PCV-2 triggers under experimental and field conditions:

    • Porcine parvovirus (PPV)
    • Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV)
    • Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae 

    However, the list of infectious agents found in concomitance with PCV-2 cases under natural conditions is much more extensive 

    Vaccinations against PCV-2 does not only imply direct beneficial effects on pig productivity, but also contributes to reduction of antimicrobial use.
