Florfenicol resistance: Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae

The important economic losses associated with APP are related to pigs not growing at their genetic potential due to chronic respiratory disease, and consequently, their average daily gain (ADG) is reduced and feed conversion ratios are increased.

Summary

The low rate of resistance development, the low prevalence of transferable resistance determinants among swine respiratory pathogens, and the limited use of phenicols in human and veterinary medicine explain the continued high degree of Florfenicol susceptibility among swine respiratory isolates.
