Experimental infection with pseudorabies virus was carried out by oral exposure of four young wild swine held in contact with two unexposed controls. No disease was observed but virological procedures indicated that the virus was shed in saliva and, in one case, in the nasal discharge, with subsequent infection of the control animals. After slaughter the virus was reisolated from the tonsils but not from lungs and brain. Virus reisolation from the tonsils was obtained in two animals after the throat swabs became negative. Virus neutralizing antibodies were detected.

Abstract

Experimental infection with pseudorabies virus was carried out by oral exposure of four young wild swine held in contact with two unexposed controls. No disease was observed but virological procedures indicated that the virus was shed in saliva and, in one case, in the nasal discharge, with subsequent infection of the control animals. After slaughter the virus was reisolated from the tonsils but not from lungs and brain. Virus reisolation from the tonsils was obtained in two animals after the throat swabs became negative. Virus neutralizing antibodies were detected.
