Seneca Valley Virus Document from the NDA

The Nebraska Department of Agriculture has recently been involved in several Foreign Animal Disease (FAD) investication involving finisher hogs and suspected Seneca Valley Virus (SVV).  There is no way of visually differentiating between lesions caused by SVV or Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD).  Therefore, NDA staff has been conducting testing on all susspected cases to ensure FMD is not involved.   

For more clinical/physiological information on the SVV in Swine, visit the following websites:

It is important to note that SVV is an emerging reportable disease, and therefore upon discovery, is required by statute to be reported to the State Veterinarian.  If you have questions or need to report a suspected case, please contact the State Veterinarian's office at 402-471-2351.      Read more
