Comparison of the efficiency of oral and parenteral iron preparation in the prevention of anemia in piglets

Comparison of the efficiency of oral and parenteral iron preparation in the prevention of anemia in piglets

Medycyna Weterynaryjna 51(6): 354-356

The efficacy of two iron preparations: iron-dextran-Ferrodex and Ane-Tahna was evaluated. Ferrodex was injected i.m., into piglets at the age of 2 days whereas Ane-Tahna was applied orally to 2 and 9 day-old piglets. A single dose of the examined preparations was the equivalent of 200 mg of iron. The experiments were monitored by hematological examinations performed every week until the 49th day of life. The hematological parameters at both groups of animals were similar. It has been found that contrary to controls the treated piglets had not shown any signs of anemia. Body weight gains, morbidity and mortality of piglets treated with Ferrodex and Ane-Tahna were also similar. One can conclude that both Ferrodex and Ane-Tahna applied according to the recommendations of the producer prevent anemia in piglets.
