Symptoms of mastitis metritis a galactia syndrome in sows are lack of appetite, stop in milk flow, fever of 103 to 105, shivering or trembling, a hot firm udder 24 to 72 hours after farrowing. Most often there is a white mucoid discharge from the vulva. Sows may or may not allow newborn pigs to nurse, with the result that newborn pigs starve to death. Sows will have normal litters of pigs, or may have weak or stillborn pigs.
