Veterinarians that work with pigs make important and global contribution to society by ensuring adequate and safe food is available, while still maintaining the health and welfare of pigs. In addition, pig veterinarians are extending the scope and delivery of veterinary science by becoming involved in training programs for pig producers, quality assurance programs, and establishing and managing production systems and global disease prevention.

This years Australian Pig Veterinarians Virtual Conference brings together the profession with 7 hours of high quality CPD and delves into the questions encountered in the veterinary practice and industry today. It is an event not to be missed and offers a flexible and on-demand virtual format.

On-demand videos of the entire conference will be available for registered delegates until 23 March 2022. Please be logged in to watch the talks.

Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) was initially detected in the late 1990s in North America and Europe associated with a post weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome in pigs. Furthermore, the term “porcine circovirus diseases” (PCVDs) was proposed to define diseases linked to PCV2 which currently include PCV2 systemic disease, PCV2 reproductive disease, PCV2 subclinical infection and porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS). Porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV3) has been recently described and linked to PCVD-like scenarios, however experimental evidence is yet to be presented to support this association.
