SHIC Emerging Disease Focus Results in Porcine Sapovirus Diagnostic Tools
In 2019, a new variant of porcine sapovirus (PSaV) infection was identified in the U.S. on a farm reporting piglet diarrhea issues for two years. Piglet SaV infection during the lactation phase resulted in smaller pigs at weaning, losing one to two pounds, which represents a significant health and economic consequence. PSaV is included on SHIC’s Swine Viral Disease Matrix; knowing the epidemiology and having effective diagnostics for those pathogens is key to effective management.
