Diarrhoea caused by infectious agents is responsible for large economic losses in pig production farms, especially in suckling and weaned piglets. Coronavirus and rotavirus, as well as enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), are described as the most frequent viral and bacterial enteropathogens, respectively. Of the metazoic parasites of piglets, Isospora suis and Cryptosporidium parvum are considered the most prevalent. This study underlines the fact that despite the hygienic, technical and immune preventive efforts during the last years, enteropathogens are still common in German piglet production units.
