Romania reports African swine fever in farm pigs

BUCHAREST – Romania has reported an outbreak of African swine fever at a breeding farm for pigs in the southern county of Tulcea, the national food safety authority ANSVSA said on Monday. It said all pigs on the holding, or 44,580, would be culled. In June, Romania reported an outbreak of African swine fever among backyard pigs in the same county. African swine fever is a highly contagious disease that affects pigs and wild boar and has spread in Eastern Europe in recent years. Hungary, Russia, Poland, Ukraine and Romania are among the countries affected, alarming governments and pig farmers due the pace at which it has spread.

Taxonomy: Guinea pig

A 3-year old intact male guinea pig was presented on emergency for suspected bloat and with a history of chronic hair loss. Clinical examination revealed non-pruritic symmetric truncal alopecia, thin skin, severe cachexia, and an abdominal fluid wave. Alkaline phosphatase, alanine transaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, gamma-glutamyl transferase, leukocytes, bilirubin, and serum cortisol were markedly elevated. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed peritoneal effusion, cholestasis, and cholelithiasis.

Healthy Coat for Horses

They are all produced and marketed by the same company, but as far as I can tell from a side by side comparison of the labels, they all basically share the same ingredients. The only major difference between the three is in the price. I have 2 Dachshunds, a Chihuahua, and a French Bulldog who all love this stuff and will lick it up by itself, although I mix it in with their food. I give them 1 teaspoon daily and they all have healthy, shiny, vibrant coats and no skin issues.

The Guinea Pig Forum

I got the feeling I wrongly explained myself, I always clean them in 5 days at least, except during the exam, but I have 3 cage, then I do a rotation : 1st cage, then after a week, in the other clean cage, then after a week in the 3rd cage, and then my exam are finished and I clean all the cage and go back to a normal routine. So they are not in physical contact with the cage that is dirty.
