Disease pig is a type of pig that often appears in the field of pig breeding. It is called stilted pig, lazy pig or old pig, also known as growth and development disorder syndrome. Disease pig in a certain stage of growth and development, affected by some adverse factors, resulting in slow growth or even long-term growth stagnation. The skin is pale, the skin is thick and wrinkled, the fur is rough and dull, the spirit is dull, the back is bent, the waist is extremely thin, so it is called "developmental disorder syndrome". Disease pig not only waste feed, but also cause slow growth rate, prolonged feeding cycle, reduced feed returns, and significantly decreased economic benefits. To some extent, disease pig are more serious than common diseases of pigs. The appearance of disease pig seriously affects the uniformity and homogeneity of piglets, and thus affects the production level and economic benefits of the whole pig farm. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the causes of the formation of disease pig and take corresponding preventive measures to prevent the production of disease pigs.
