Dietic feed promotes metabolic balance and intestinal function, resulting in maintaining water and electrolyte balance to support the piglets’ physiological digestion.
The gut of the newborn pig is sterile but is colonised rapidly by bacteria. Piglets are born with an immature mucosal immune system at birth and are therefore more susceptible to disturbances in the intestinal microbiota. When not receiving sufficient quality colostrum, the piglets may develop digestive disturbances in the intestinal microbiota, with all its consequences. Neonatal diarrhoea (ND) in piglets is of significant importance for the pig industry as it causes economic losses due to increased morbidity and mortality, decreased weight gain, and the need for extra medications and, therefore, extra labour.
