Effect of vitamin E on the adrenocortical responsiveness of weaned piglets



Effect of vitamin E on the adrenocortical responsiveness of weaned piglets



Acta Veterinaria Brno 44(3): 155-162



In 3 experiments piglets weaned at 4 weeks were given alpha -tocopheryl acetate. In the first, at 50 to 60 days old, 10 to 18 kg liveweight, 7 piglets got 300 mg alpha -tocopheryl acetate by mouth and 7 got none. The next day they got corticotropin by injection. After similar vitamin treatment in the second experiment 8 piglets were stressed with insulin by vein without feed to next day.
