-Mange; itchy skin disease affecting pigs of all ages. Keep the piggery clean to avoid these.

-Viral Diseases like African Swine Fever. Carry out proper biosafety measures and dispose of every affected pig by burying it at least 6feet deep.

-Worms, abscesses, heat stroke, salt poisoning, pneumonia.  These can be dealt with through regular deworming and regularly and seeking services of a veterinary officer. -Foot conditions common in breeding stock, the main causes being bruising or puncture wounds in the-feet.
