Swine pox is carried by the mange mite. Make sure your sows are sprayed or ivomeced before going into the crates. No antibiotic is effective for this as it is a virus. I have sometimes limited the spread of pox by spraying each lesion with purple lotion spray. Good luck, Piggy

piggy thats a very good description and I think I will try exactly what you said. We usually try Ivomec at least two weeks before the sows farrow and at first sign of any pox. It has taken a couple of years but I think we have taken it all out. Just something else you could try.
