Suiferm® Iron Paste

Dietetic complementary feed for piglets for the stabilisation of physiological digestion

Suiferm® Iron Paste, provides a high level of readily available iron and a large number of viable lactic acid bacteria, as well as vitamins.

Oral iron paste with vitamins and lactic acid bacteria, for piglets

Four important reasons for the oral application of iron in piglets:

1st The injection of iron on the 3rd day of life is often too late, as up to 60 % of the piglets are suffering from anaemia at birth, already. An injection on day 1 cannot be recommended as vitamin E, as a protective agent for the cells, is usually not available in sufficient quantity.
2nd The injection of iron has an immuno-suppressive effect. This fact has been proven scientifically.
3rd At the usual time of an iron injection piglets show the highest frequency of disease. Hence, in many cases sick piglets are treated and charged.
4th Piglets suffering from scours, at the time of an iron injection, are usually bearing faeces on their skin. This means a risk of pathogens entering the animal together with the injection.
