Sommaire en anglais
Hog cholera is the most deadly of all foreign swine diseases. Symptoms can be mild to severe, dependingon a pig's resistance to the disease. Canadian swine have a low resistance and up to 60 percent may die.
There is not treatment. The virus does not affect humans or other animals.
Hog cholera is currently sweeping through continental Europe and has had grave economic impact. In the past, periodic outbreaks in Canada cost us millions of dollars in lost export sales, lost domestic production and costs to control and stamp out the disease. Increased international travel and importation of swine products could once again introduce hog cholera into our country.
