Iron deficiency anaemia in piglets. A clash between physiology and modern rearing conditions

, : Iron deficiency anaemia in piglets. A clash between physiology and modern rearing conditions. Norsk Veterinaertidsskrift 101(12): 925-930

Under modern rearing conditions, when it is not possible to obtain adequate iron from the environment or from the sow's milk, the iron reserves of a piglet will have been used up before the forth day after birth. A haemoglobin concentration of <80 g/litre is indicative of anaemia. A group of piglets receiving 180 mg iron parenterally 2 hours after birth was compared with a group which did not receive any supplementary iron.
