This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: to avoid any previous exposure to hog cholera. In testing No.54-1 which is claimed to be both at curative and an immunizing agent we used three healthy pigs for the immunizing dose and three sick pigs for the curative dose. The sick pigs selected were in the early stage of the disease as they were known to be eating and appearing healthy up to January 25, 1915, the day before the tests were made. The pen used for the above tests was clean and well ventilated. The pigs received the best of care and feed. The tests of Co-Vac-O, Hog Cholera Immune and Hog Cholera No. 2 were started on January 12, 1915, while the tests for No. 544 and Anti-hog cholera serum were started on January 26, 1915, the pigs being placed in the same pen with the other tests. Virus was administered to the pigs receiving anti-hog cholera serum and the two check pigs only, the other pigs receiving their exposure from contact with sick pigs in the same pen. The doses administered were exactly as recommended by the manufacturers of the various products. _ Careful post mortem examinations were held over all pigs that died.
