The benefits of iron injection

Parenteral administration

Once again, the most practical, cost-effective, accurately dosed, and effective method of providing supplemental iron to piglets is via injectable administration. With the proper injection technique, a single 200-mg dose of supplemental iron at 1 to 4 days of age offers the following advantages:

  • Accurate dosing.
  • Optimal efficacy and weight gain.
  • Cost-effective use of labour with dosing of piglets between 1 and 4 days of age.
  • Minimised risk of subclinical or full-scale iron-deficiency anaemia.
  • Supports optimum growth rates of piglets on an all-milk diet.
  • Enhanced immunity and improved general health of piglets.
