13th Sep 2022 / By Rebecca Veale

In the latest edition of Pig World, NPA’s Rebecca Veale outlines the latest information on vesicular diseases like foot-and-mouth (FMD), which remains endemic in some parts of the world.

FMD is the best-known vesicular disease, although there are others, including swine vesicular disease, vesicular stomatitis and Seneca valley virus, the first two of which are also notifiable.

The article covers the symptoms, the global risk, the risk to the UK and key veterinary advice.
