Respiratory diseases in pigs are classified into two broad categories based on the extent and duration of the disease. Acute or severe type diseases like Swine Fever, Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS), Swine Influenza, etc., and chronic infections with poor clinical signs. The economic damage is more in infections with indefinite time, although the mortality is usually low. The losses come from the adverse effects on the growth rate, decreased feed efficiency, and medication costs. Nevertheless, economic stress can be avoided by proper management and prophylactic measures.
The category of diseases impacting for a longer time comprises of common diseases like Mycoplasmal pneumonia and pleuropneumonia, atrophic rhinitis, Streptococcus sp., Actinobacillus sp., Bordetella bronchiseptica coupled with Pasteurella sp. are an important cause of farm losses due to decrease in growth rate and feed conversion in young pigs. Respiratory conditions in pigs are frequently the result of multiple agents (mixed infections) and rarely due to a single pathogen.
Bronchodilatory action of RELIEVO widens the congested air passage and allows a pig to breathe normally during respiratory distress. The inflammatory discharge and fibrous exudates produced by damaged tissue in the lungs get expelled by the expectorant and anti-inflammatory actions of RELIEVO. Regenerating effects of Phyto-molecules restore the healthy mucin layer slowly and strengthen the primary barrier of the immune system. Phytogenic compounds of RELIEVO minimize the cough production in the lungs which also resolves the dyspnea and allows oxygen transfer through the alveolar wall. Additionally, the immunomodulatory and antimicrobial properties of herbs enhance the immune response of pigs

- Works as a decongestant, antitussive, and expectorant
- Anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator in action
- Enhances healthy mucus secretion
- Improves oxygenation and reduces gasping
- Visible recovery within 5 days
