Treatment of baby pigs with Uniferon® 100 prevents anemia and reduces losses due to iron deficiency. Adequate iron is necessary for normal, healthy, vigorous growth. Uniferon 100 Indications Uniferon® 100 is intended for the prevention or treatment of iron deficiency anemia in baby pigs. Iron deficiency anemia occurs commonly in the suckling pig, often within the first few days following birth. As body size and blood volume increase rapidly from the first few days following birth, hemoglobin levels in the blood fall due to diminishing iron reserves which cannot be replaced adequately from iron in the sow’s milk. This natural deficiency lowers the resistance of the pig and scours, pneumonia or other infections may develop and lead to death of the animal. Pigs not hampered by iron deficiency anemia are more likely to experience normal growth and to maintain their normal level of resistance to disease. Dosage: Intramuscular Injection. Prevention: 1 mL (100 mg iron) at 2 - 4 days of age. Treatment: 1 mL (100 mg iron). May be repeated in approximately 10 days.
