Antifoaming agent, magnesium and cobalt
Oral or intraruminal use
100 ml and 1 liter bottles
Composition: each 100 ml contains Dimethylpolysiloxane 10 g, Magnesium chloride hexahydrate 0.2 g, Cobalt chloride hexahydrate 20 mg.
Indications: prevention and treatment of acute and chronic pasture bloat [gas and primary tympany (frothy bloat)] in cattle, sheep and horses. The maximum incidence of pasture bloat is observed in spring in pastures of alfalfa, clovers and other leguminous plants, due to gas bubbles generated during fermentation, producing abdominal distension and exerting pressure on the diaphragm, heart and lungs. If animals are not treated in time, they may eventually die of suffocation or shock. In horses, the disease is usually rapid and very serious, and can appear at any time.
Dimethylpolysiloxane reduces surface tension producing a rapid dissolution of the foam in the gastrointestinal tract, favouring rumination. Animals affected should be handled very carefully, since breathing capacity is seriously compromised.
Administration and dosage: by oral or intraruminal route.
Preventive treatment: directly dilute 100 ml of the product every 1,000 liters of drinking water. Repeat daily for at least one week.
Curative treatment: dilute 10 ml in 90 ml of water. Accordingly, administer the following doses:
Cattle: 100 ml
Horses: 100 ml
Sheep: 25 ml
The dose can be administered orally (using feeding tube, syringe or bottle) or intraruminally (by puncture in the left flank using a long needle) and repeated every 6 hours, according to professional criteria and the severity of the clinical condition.
Precautions: shake before using.
Administer according to professional criteria.
