Treating Diarrhoea In Farm Animals
Treating Diarrhoea In Farm AnimalsTreating young farm animals, in particular pigs and cattle, that have been affected with scours at an early stage of the disease is imperative to the animal’s long-term health.
Scours also known as gastro-enteritis or diarrhoea are caused by pathogenic agents such as viruses and bacteria.
The disease results in a loss of water and electrolyte imbalances. Death from scours is basically brought about by excessive dehydration and loss of electrolytes.
Veterinary hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is an effective solution for treating scours as it is a powerful, yet friendly non-toxic biocide.
▪ Kills off pathogens that inhabit the oral cavity, oesophagus, stomach and upper parts of the small intestine.
▪ Inactivates bacterial toxins which is a major advantage compared to ordinary electrolyte solutions
▪ Treatment of scours in the water ingested by animals or parenteral administration aims at correcting dehydration, killing harmful bacteria and viruses while restoring salts lost in the bodily fluids.
▪ Can be applied by fogging to the pens in order to reduce the cross-contamination of harmful germs during animal rearing.
