Ambulation was delayed, but the early bed to chair mobilization helped prevent many complications of prolonged recumbence. This approach did not attempt to treat the fracture specifically and accepted the deformity that invariably ensues.
Affected pigs showed pyrexia and anorexia, dragged their hind legs, and then showed recumbence. In addition, affected animals had severe cutaneous hemorrhages, especially on medial and lateral sides of the pinna, forelimbs above the carpal joint, facial region, scrotum, and mammary glands (Figure, panels B and C).
