Overview

Baycox Iron is a veterinary medicine. It is used in young piglets on farms which have been affected in the past by the parasitic infection coccidiosis to prevent diarrhoea caused by a new coccidiosis infection. Coccidiosis is a disease of the gut which results in reduced growth due to diarrhoea.  Infected piglets shed disease spores (oocysts) in their faeces that can spread the infection. Baycox Iron is also used to reduce spread of the infection through passage of oocysts in faeces, and at the same time to prevent iron deficiency anaemia due to the limited iron reserves of new-born piglets, low iron content of milk and high growth rate of suckling piglets.

Baycox Iron contains the active substances toltrazuril and gleptoferron (an iron-containing compound).
