Metabolism & Coccidiosis


  • Cevazuril®, for the control of diarrhoea in suckling pigs

Isospora suis is the intracellular coccidia, which causes the transient diarrheic disease of suckling piglets. It is one of the most prevalent parasites in intensive pig production. Neonatal piglet coccidiosis has a cosmopolitan distribution and is found anywhere pigs are raised in confinement.

Coccidiosis of suckling piglets is responsible for significant economic losses due to diarrhea with subsequently decreased weight gain and poor performance.        

Morbidity can reach up to 100% piglets in the affected litter. Mortality is usually not observed in the conditions of natural infection, unless secondary bacterial or viral infections cause severe enteritis. The main impact is on reduced weight gain and increased medication cost.

Single oral administration of 20mg toltrazuril / kg lbw results in the increased weaning weight and reduction of the other medication costs dedicated to diarrhoea treatment.


  • GLEPTOSIL® (injectable gleptoferron) for the treatment and prevention of anaemia in piglets.

Fast absorption and use are essential to guarantee the efficacy of iron injections. GLEPTOSIL® provides 20% of iron in gleptoferron form, ensuring rapid absorption and high iron concentrations in the blood in those critical first days of life. In fact, over 95% of the iron injected in GLEPTOSIL® is absorbed within 24 hours, allowing piglets to express their full genetic potential.
