Porcilis PCV M Hyo is used to protect pigs against two of the most important diseases in pigs porcine circovirus associated diseases and Enzootic pneumonia, caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae.
- Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) infections can produce clinical signs such as wasting, weight loss or failure to grow, enlarged lymph nodes, difficulty in breathing, diarrhoea, pale skin and jaundice (yellowing of the skin).
- Infection with the bacterium Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in pigs is responsible for the development of enzootic pneumonia. Affected pigs have a dry cough and fail to thrive, with important consequences to their growth performance.

Indications for use
For the active immunisation of pigs to reduce viraemia, virus load in lungs and lymphoid tissues, virus shedding caused by porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) infection, and severity of lung lesions caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection. To reduce the loss of daily weight gain during the finishing period in face of infections with Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and/or PCV2 (as observed in field studies).
The vaccine is given to pigs from three weeks of age as a single injection into the neck muscle. Protection against PCV2 starts at two weeks after vaccination and for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae it starts four weeks after vaccination.
Protection lasts for 22 weeks after vaccination for PCV2 and for 21 weeks after vaccination for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae.
