The concept of modern industrial production of pigs on commercial farms is based, among other things, on the implementation of biosecurity measures as well as solving problems of environmental protection, which greatly burden the production. It is well known that good health is a prerequisite for good pig reproduction, that is, a successful and profi table production. The health status of the herd depends on many factors such as the maintenance technology, nursing, nutrition, organization, level of staff training and systematic implementation of good health care policies. Today, we are witnessing high incidence of bacterial diseases, viral etiology and certain parasites that seriously aff ect the pig production in intensive farming conditions. Keeping such diseases under control is possible only by applying appropriate prophylactic and therapeutic measures, as well as by increased monitoring by professional services.
