Abstract

Medical conditions are classified into groups by their predominant affected system. Namely: enteric, neurological, respiratory, circulatory, skin and urinary. The signs of the conditions are described together with diagnostic indicators classified as respiratory, circulatory, skin and urinary. Treatment options are discussed with specific reference to back yard pigs. Helminths and routine worming, and routine vaccination are discussed separately.
