This study was conducted to determine if Oral Fluid samples collected from pigs housed individually or in groups contain Bordetella bronchiseptica (Bb) and Pasteurella multocida (PMT), capable of being detected by qPCR.

This study demonstrates that pig Oral Fluid may contain genetic material of Bordetella bronchiseptica (Bb) and Pasteurella multocida (PMT), which is detectable by qPCR. The detection rate was similar in OF and NS from the same animal or group of animals. These results suggest that OF could be used for monitoring of AR in pigs, reducing labor and animal stress during sample collection, and providing valuable information about the health status of breeding and growing pigs in regards to AR. The findings also suggest that there may be a significant proportion of pigs free from Bb infection, although it is considered a normal inhabitant of the respiratory tract in pigs.
