Mastitis (Mastitis)

Due to successive metritis, postpartum placenta.
Due to infection: from the environment to the breast causes inflammation; Piglet teeth scratch the nipples and cause infection.
After giving birth, maternal blood calcium is too low, leading to milk fever in the sow leading to mastitis.
The unhygienic barn creates conditions for germs to multiply and develop and cause disease.

Pigs appear red, swollen breasts 2 days after birth, usually symmetrical between two rows of breasts, hot to touch, pressing on the breast of the mother pig shows pain. If the inflammation is severe, the pig will stop eating, do not want to breastfeed, have a fever of 40.5 – 42 ° C, and milk lumps in the inflamed breasts. The inflamed breasts spread to the other breasts very quickly. If treatment is not timely, pigs will lose milk.
