Reference ranges for clinical biochemical parameters commonly investigated in pigs were determined in one- (day 1), 21- and 35-day old piglets. The mean and standard deviation were also estimated for body weight, and haematological and clinical biochemical parameters at these ages. The piglets were divided into 2 investigation groups according to whether(More)
The goals of this study were to evaluate the effect of orally administered amino acid-chelated iron (Fe) compared to injected Fe-dextran on haematology and weight gain in two different breeds raised under commercial conditions. Altogether 92 Duroc (D) pigs and 84 Norwegian Landrace (L) pigs from two different herds were included in the study. The day after(More)
The disposition of penicillin G in piglets is described after intramuscular or subcutaneous injection of depot preparations. The piglets were injected with 33 000 IU/kg or 100 000 IU/kg benzathine + procaine penicillin G intramuscularly or subcutaneously, or 100 000 IU/kg procaine penicillin G intramuscularly or subcutaneously. Intramuscular injection of(More)
The aims of the study were to evaluate the effect of iron-dextran injection given on the first, third or fourth day after birth on haematology in piglets. An advanced automated blood analyser; Technicon H*1, which performs a complete blood cell count and leukocyte differential counts was used to analyse the blood. Six litters of Norwegian Landrace x(More)
Six litters of Norwegian Landrace piglets were included in the study. The day after birth (day 1), half of the piglets (split litters) were given 52 mg glutamic acid-chelated Fe (4 ml of a 50% solution of Super Fe-MAX) perorally. All the piglets had free access to a 3% solution of Super Fe-MAX from this day until weaning at 5 weeks. The piglets were weighed(More)
Two trials were performed in 2 different pig herds. In Trial 1, 9 pregnant Norwegian landrace sows were given a supplement in the feed of about 300 mg iron daily as amino acid-chelated iron (Bio-plex) during the last 3 weeks of gestation. Ten sows were included as controls. In Trial 2, 10 sows were fed a supplement of about 650 mg iron daily as glutamic(More)
The analytic precision of an automated blood analyzer, the Technicon H*1(R), was evaluated utilizing blood samples collected from 20 piglets at 1 and 14 days of age. The effect of storing the blood samples at 4 degrees C for 24 and 48 hours also was determined. Blood samples were analyzed twice on the first day and once on each of the subsequent tow days.(More)
In the present study early postnatal changes in erythropoietin (Epo) level and hemoglobin concentration in 8 lambs were examined. Plasma Epo was estimated by a monoclonal enzyme-immunoassay (ELISA), developed for human Epo. In all the lambs, except one, Epo was low, or undetectable, immediately after birth. Within 6-12 h after birth, a marked increase in(More)
