The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of the addition of the probiotic “Primix Forsil” and the adsorbent “Vitacorm REO” into the feed for young pigs, using different schemes based on the morphological and biochemical parameters of the animal’s blood. The scientific and economic experiment took place at the SE ”Moldsiungibrid”. Forty hybrid gilts of Landrace x Pietrain breed were used as they were separated into 4 groups on the principle of analogy (10 animals in each group). The gilts in the control group were fed the basic ration, while the pigs in the experimental groups were fed a feed supplemented with different substances, namely: the probiotic “Primix Forsil” (0.5 kg/t) – for the pigs in the first group, the adsorbent “Vitacorm REO” (4.0 kg/t) – for the pigs in the second group, and the probiotic “Primix Forsil” and “Vitacorm REO” in equal proportions – for the pigs in the third group. The feed was balanced according to the feeding norms, and modified in compliance with the animals’ age and body weight. The obtained results demonstrated that, the supplementation of the fodders for pigs with the adsorbent “Vitacorm REO” both separately or in combination with the probiotic “Primix Forsil”, had a good influence on the general level of blood protein. At the end of the experiment, the albumin level as well as that of the AST (Aspartate Aminotransferase) in the blood of the pigs in the experimental groups were higher in comparison with that in the pigs in the control group.
