How does Iron-100 (Iron Hydrogenated Dextran Injection 100 mg/ml), 100 ml vial work?

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. Thus, the need for a readily available outside source of iron is apparent. Without this additional iron many newborn pigs may develop anemia within the first few days of life. Anemia retards growth and lowers the body defenses against disease; scours, pneumonia, and other conditions may develop.
