(2) Yellow diarrhea should be considered when the color of pig feces is yellow and there are incompletely digested curds in the feces.
Yellow scour is caused by hemolytic Escherichia coli. It mainly occurs in piglets at the age of 3-7 days. It is also known as early-onset colibacillosis. It discharges yellow or yellowish-white mushy stool and contains undigested curds; Carrier does not occur. Available gentamicin: 1.50 mg/kg body weight, intramuscular injection.
(3) The color of pig feces is white, the feces are accompanied by bubbles and fishy odors, and most of them are pullorum
Piglet white scour is caused by pathogenic Escherichia coli. It mainly occurs in piglets aged 10-20 days. It is also known as delayed colibacillosis. It has milky white or off-white mushy stool, smelly, cold body and fear of cold. Most pigs At the same time, gentamicin sulfate can be taken orally at 5~10mg/kg body weight each time, twice a day, for 2~3 days.
