Animal Disease Control

Kansas continues to be Brucellosis, Tuberculosis and Pseudorabies free due to a continued and diligent effort to eradicate infectious and contagious livestock diseases throughout the state.

Diseases of concern

Senecavirus A

Senecavirus A, also known as Seneca Valley Virus, is a vesicular disease in swine, and its clinical signs can resemble Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD). All symptoms may not be present but can include vesicles on the snout or in oral mucosa, acute lameness, anorexia, lethargy and fever. It has been reported sporadically (fewer than 20 cases) in the United States since the 1980s, but recently it has been found in exhibition and commercial farrowing and finishing swine in several states.
