John Carr, DVM, thinks Iowa State University should be the center of the universe when it comes to pig health maintenance.

Carr, an assistant professor of veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine at ISU, has created a comprehensive Swine Health Web site (http://www.vetmed.iastate.edu/departments/vdpam/swine/) that is accessible to veterinarians, students and producers anywhere in the world.

"In many countries, veterinary students and even veterinarians don't have books. But they can access the Web," says Carr. In fact, students and veterinary medicine faculty in Johannesburg, South Africa, are using Carr's Web site to learn about the care and well being of pigs.

The Web site provides general and detailed information, photos and illustrations on swine basics (including anatomy), diseases, production management, health management, food safety and quality assurance, public health, pet pigs and veterinary techniques. The Web site, which is updated regularly, also provides links to other information resources.
