PRRS-Induced SRD Control from the Start
Pulmotil® AC quickly and effectively manages swine respiratory disease (SRD) associated with Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (Myco) in the presence of PRRS without the need to formulate new rations, or invest the additional time and label associated with individual pig injections.
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSv) impairs natural disease-fighting macrophages, increasing susceptibility to other bacteria. Pulmotil’s unique mode of action concentrates in pulmonary macrophages, slowing the effectiveness of the PRRSv replication process and killing bacteria associated with swine respiratory disease.1, 2
Pulmotil AC is the only FDA-approved aqueous concentrate that controls SRD associated with Myco in the presence of PRRSv in groups of swine in buildings where a respiratory disease outbreak is diagnosed.
Quick. Effective. Easy.
Pulmotil AC supplements host defenses, making neutrophils more effective. As the macrophages degenerate, Pulmotil releases — ready for a new macrophage.

50 lbs. pig** = 0.225 g / day
*Must be diluted before administration to animals. Use within 24 hours of mixing with water.
**Intake assumptions: 25 lb pig = 2.5 lbs/day feed, 0.3 gal/day water; 50 lb pig = 3 lbs/day feed, 0.6 gal/day water; 75 lb pig = 4 lbs/day feed, 0.9 gal/day water; Lactating sow = 12 lbs/day feed, 6 gal/day water.
