The study was carried out to determine the effects of levels of adsorbent "Vitacorm REO-M" on the growth, hematology, and serum biochemistry of pigs. The pigs were separated into four groups and further randomized design and fed diets contained by weight: concentrates grain mixture consisting of barley – 43.0%, corn – 10.0%, wheat – 11.0 – 11.5%, peas – 8.0 – 8.5%, and also bran – 6.0-8.0%, soybean meal – 5.0-9.0%, sunflower meal – 6.0%, fish meal – 5.0%, soybean oil – 2.0%, premix – 2.5%. The control animals (CG) were fed the main diet and EG1, EG2 and EG3 diet included adsorbent additive "Vitacorm REO-M" in the amount of 2.0, 4.0 and 6.0 kg per ton of feed, respectively. The pigs were adequately housed, while feed and potable water were supplied ad libitum. At the end of the experiment 3 pigs were randomly sampled from each treatment (1 per replicate) and blood collected through venipuncture on veins at backside of the ears. Results showed significant (P≤0.05) effect of "Vitacorm REO-M" at a dosage of 4 kg per ton of feed allowed to obtain an additional average daily gain in EG2 (0.541 kg) 7.98% higher than in the CG. Was found that the highest content of total protein at the end of the experience was observed in CG - 68.95% (while in EG2 - 64.43%, EG1 - 64.62%, EG3 - 63.22%) and the highest level of γ-globulin content was noted in EG1 and EG3, respectively 9.33 and 9.53%. AST activity maximum increase (at a rate of 22.0-47.0 u/l) was observed in animals of the EG1 by 11.11%, and a decrease of 7.02% in EG3 relative to the CG. In the EG2, the AST index was within the normal range - 40.0 U/l. ALT activity was reduced in comparison with the CG in the EG1 by 4.23% - 3.0 U/l, in the EG2 - by 19.72% - 14.0 U/l.
