Effect of ad libitum oral administration of sulfamonomethoxine and ormetoprim mixed in water on weight gain in suckling piglets



Effect of ad libitum oral administration of sulfamonomethoxine and ormetoprim mixed in water on weight gain in suckling piglets



Japanese Journal of Swine Science 35(3): 93-97



In order to clarify the effects of synthetic antibacterial agents mixed into drinking water on body weight gain in suckling piglets, Sulfamonomethoxine and Ormetoprim (SO) were used. Drinking water added SO diluted to 0.2% was provided to 54 piglets from 6 litters in the medication section and water was given to 27 piglets from 3 litters in the control section. The piglets were given water or SO mixed into water with ad libitum drinking at 1 day to 28 days using the water vessels for piglets. Clinical symptoms were examined together with body weight gain of 3 to 63 days and at shipping. As for the inspection of antibody in the blood a Toxoplasma gondii, Bordetella bronchiseptica and Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 2 (APP II) were investigated. The piglets given liquid with SO showed better results in some aspects ; diarrhea and eye patchy did not develop, body weight gain at 3 to 63 days as well as at shipping were recognized to be significantly high, and the changed positive rate of APP II was low. These results, therefore, suggest that ad libitum oral administration of the synthetic antibacterial agents mixed into drinking water prevents suckling piglets from diarrhea by the bacteria of mother sow origin, and that the method is effective in the body weight gain.
