Actions. Injectable Uniferon®
200 is easy and economical to use. Injection into the ham is rapid,
safe, effective, quickly absorbed by the blood and goes to work
immediately. With injectable Uniferon®
200, the right dosage can be given to every animal with assurance that
it will be utilized. 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. Adequate iron is necessary for normal, healthy,
