Our kind of work. We’re like pigs in…..when it comes to pig health
We like nothing more than getting covered in mud and looking after pigs. And it’s important work too, as pigs can carry diseases called Zoonoses. These are nasties that can spread from pigs to humans...with potentially fatal consequences.
Leptospirosis is one such zoonotic disease. Symptoms can range from mild flu to multiple organ failure, even death. Another is Erysipelas rhusiopathiae or ‘Diamond Skin Disease’, a rather horrible nasty that causes infections on human skin.
If your pigs need attention because they aren't well or you would like to talk about keeping them well, please get in touch. We offer a number of other services for pigs, such as putting rings in their noses (using anaesthetic) vaccinations, nutritional supplements, wormers etc...you name it and we can help.
