P. multocida is a bacterium that infects a wide range of animals such as pigs, rabbits, cows, and birds. Symptoms include pneumonia, cough, shortness of breath, fever, skin discoloration, loss of appetite, etc. In the worst case, it may lead to death. In the case of pigs, infection of P. multocida is accompanied by other respiratory diseases such as porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) and atrophic rhinitis (AR). Farmers may suffer from increased mortality rate and reduced growth rate of pigs, which further leads to economic loss due to the delayed shipping. Pneumonia caused by P. multocida and by other pathogens have similar symptoms, which is why P. multocida-specific PCR is required for the distinguishment.
