ProVet issues a warning regarding heat-related hog stress.

The Antique Provincial Veterinary (ProVet) instructed hog farmers in the province to prevent heat stress in their animals.

According to ProVet chief Dr. Marco Rafael Ardamil in an interview on Tuesday, pig pens should have free ventilation and be well-managed.

According to him, hogs frequently contract pneumonia while under stress and when their immune systems are weak.

According to him, it involved the two hog deaths in the municipality of Tobias Fornier, which were initially suspected cases of African swine fever (ASF) on April 24 and reported to the municipal agriculture office.

Tobias Fornier’s mayor moved swiftly to issue an Executive Order prohibiting the transportation of hogs within their municipality for 14 days to stop the disease’s spread, according to Ardamil.

In the end, ProVet discovered that pneumonia, not ASF, was to blame for the deaths.

“Antique is still ASF-free as of right now, but given the current weather, we advise hog raisers to do the necessary interventions to prevent their hogs from contracting other diseases,” Ardamil added.

According to him, the province’s Bantay African Swine Fever sa Barangay (Babay ASF) program has been in place to ensure Antique doesn’t contract the illness.

Under Department of Agriculture Administrative Order Number 7, the Babay ASF Program will provide guidelines for stepping up the government’s fight against the disease in 2021. Under this program, local government units will receive technical and support services from national government agencies to carry out interventions at the farm and community levels.
