Get the facts on Seneca Valley Virus

Since January, more than 60 positive accessions of the Seneca Valley Virus, or Senecavirus A, have been reported by labs across the United States and new cases appear to be showing up more rapidly as the summer goes on. SVV is not a limited production disease, but its symptoms are similar to foot-and-mouth disease, swine vesicular disease, vesicular stomatitis and vesicular exanthema. So, hog farmers finding lesions on the snout and coronary band/hoof lesions on sows, nursery pigs or finishing pigs should immediately consult their herd veterinarian.
