Feed additives for animals01.12.2021
It has long been no secret that we are surrounded by microorganisms everywhere. They live not only around us but inside every organism. In this case, bacteria are divided into harmful (pathogenic) and beneficial.
Harmful bacteria, being in the intestines of a warm-blooded organism (humans, animals, birds), take away vitamins and amino acids, minerals, and nutrients. If such bacteria are allowed to reproduce in large numbers, they can disrupt the gastrointestinal tract, leading to poisoning, decreased immunity, and allergies. In turn, beneficial bacteria not only help break down food into beneficial ingredients and help digest food but also fight harmful bacteria. And the outcome of this struggle depends on which side will have a numerical advantage.
In the body of any pet, there is such a struggle, even if the animal is not on the street. You can bring the infection into the house on street shoes. Or the animal can become infected by eating raw meat.
Propylene glycol (Propylene glycol) – a supplement included in some cheap feeds helps to inhibit the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract of the animal. Well, while walking “at large”, pets will always find many ways to get pathogenic bacteria in large quantities.
To help animals deal with harmful bacteria in their body, special biologics have been developed that, when they enter the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract), begin to produce beneficial substances to protect the body. Such biologicals are called probiotics and they are based on the action of beneficial bacteria for animals.
As a rule, probiotics stimulate immunity to pathogens, inhibit the growth of pathogenic microbes, prevent pathogenic microorganisms from penetrating through the intestinal wall.
The drug “Baikal” EM 1 U contains effective microorganisms (EM), which suppress and displace pathogenic and opportunistic microorganisms from the gastrointestinal tract, ensuring the predominance of beneficial microflora living in the gastrointestinal tract on the skin and others.
The drug contains a unique complex of beneficial microorganisms based on lactic acid bacteria.
for the prevention and treatment of dysbacteriosis, to strengthen the immune system, to prevent and reduce allergies, against beriberi, intoxication, and poisoning;
to normalize metabolism, to increase the digestibility of feed,
to improve the wool cover and appearance of animals;
to improve the quality of the produced offspring;
to increase the vitality of aging animals;
to normalize the microflora in places of detention, to destroy odors from animals.
The drug should be diluted in non-chlorinated water, defended for 2-3 days, be sure to shake well before use. For prevention, you can add the solution to drinking water or animal feed, you can immediately pour it into the mouth 1-2 times.
The daily dose of the drug “Baikal” EM 1 U for prevention is calculated as follows:
for large animals (weight over a kilogram) – for every 1 kg of live weight – 3-4 drops (0.2 ml) of undiluted biological product;
for small animals and birds (weight less than a kilogram) – first prepare a solution at the rate of 1:10 (4 drops of EM-drug per 1 teaspoon of warm boiled water), then add for every 100 g of live weight – 8 drops of the prepared solution.
To improve the quality of the offspring, the drug is given to females daily for at least 2 weeks before birth. The period after birth is the best time for the initial colonization of the intestine with beneficial microflora. To do this, newborn cubs and chicks once poured the diluted drug into the mouth, increasing the prophylactic daily dose by 2-3 times.
In the treatment of acute intestinal infections (diarrhea), the drug should be poured directly into the mouth, increasing the daily dose by 5-10 times, given daily until the cessation of clinical symptoms. The daily dose is divided into 2-3 doses.
To eliminate unpleasant odors of animals – the animals themselves, their toilet, cages, litter should be sprayed with the drug in a concentration of 1:50 (1 teaspoon of the drug per 1 cup of warm water). Due to the complete breakdown of hormonal molecules, the tool “Baikal” EM 1 U eliminates the very cause of the odor.
Contraindications to the drug are not established.
Store the feed additive in a closed container in a cool place (preferably in the refrigerator), but not freezing.
Protect from direct sunlight!
Shelf life is six months, but if there is an unpleasant odor (hydrogen sulfide) – it can not be used.
