1. Clinical examination of animals with symptoms similar to the diagnosis, which gives rise to a bunch of treatment

2. Evaluation of the effect of the bunch of treatment that have been made since the last short sick-or advisory visits

3. assessment of whether the diagnosis is still current, and whether there is still a need for the bunch of treatment

4. in the case of lack of or insufficient effect of processing, see. point 2, which is estimated to be due to incorrect dosing, and by other signs of incorrect dosage, vet together with the crew responsible undergo treatment procedures and dosage of the medicinal product.



Annex 7 Laboratory study in connection with the prescribing of antibiotikaholdige drugs for treatment of gastro-/tarmlidelser and bunch of respiratory diseases digestive/tarmlidelser By clinical signs of stomach-/tarmlidelser to the vet take and submit material from non-treated, treatment demanding animals.

The choice of materials depends on the clinical symptoms and results of EVS. autopsies carried out in the crew, but must at least consist of faeces and/or bowel for testing for specific bacteria and/or submission of the cadavers for autopsy.

By submission of faecal samples for testing for specific bacteria, can choose to set aside real veterinarian faeces (min. 4 samples) or a size sample, in both cases for investigation by quantitative PCR. Hereby obtained indication for the importance of the identified bacteria have for the clinical disease.

Since it is not possible on the basis of the clinical symptoms that distinguish safely between infections caused by Brachyspira pilosicoli, e. coli and Lawsonia intracellularis, it is recommended to request review for all the aforesaid agent on receipt of a stool.

Submission of the entire cadavers allows for a wider range of investigations, including viruses.

1) FISH: Flourescens In Situ Hybridization

2) MIC: Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (susceptibility testing)

3) ns: Immunofluorescence Intestinal pieces for study using the FISH can with advantage be taken directly from the slaughtered pigs in the herd and are submitted in suitable containers with formalin.

If the PCR examination of faeces is positive for e. coli, the veterinarian should assess, having regard to the effect of the current treatment, whether there should be resistance survey (MICS). Resistance study requires submission of new samples.

By suspicions that PCV2 is contributing factor to the disease, it is recommended to submit material for additional study of PCV2 using PCR. The material can consist of 5 blood tests per age group (samples are being pooled in the laboratory before PCR) or a saliva sample per age group. Alternatively, there are submitted for examination for PMWS lymph nodes by means of histology and IF.

Where else is not specified, sampling, number, storage and submission of samples carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the laboratory or in agreement with the laboratory.

Respiratory diseases veterinarian shall, on the basis of anamnesis, clinical symptoms, the age of the animals and possibly. AutoPlay evaluate possible causative agent as the cause of the clinical disease. This assessment forms the basis for the veterinarian's choice of sample material, see. the table below. Submission of the entire cadavers allows for a wider range of investigations, including viruses.
