State Vet Orders Health Certificates For Swine

Posted: Updated:

The state veterinarian is taking steps to prevent a swine virus from infecting North Dakota animals. This week, Dr. Susan Keller ordered that all swine coming into the state have a health certificate declaring they have not been exposed to the virus.

The virus is called porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, causes severe diarrhea, dehydration and vomiting in pigs. There has not been a reported case of the illness in the state, but it can be fatal in herds that have not been previously exposed.

It is easily transferred from animal to animal, but does not infect humans.

Those transporting animals into the state must have the health certificates signed by the owner as well as a veterinarian.

More information on North Dakota's swine importation requirements is available at www.nd.gov/ndda/program-info/animal-importation-requirements/swine.
