Diarrhoea (scours) is the most common disease problem in the young unweaned calf. It is estimated that it affects in varying degrees over a third of all calves during their rearing period and is responsible for about half of all British calf deaths. (MDC & NADIS).
Protect is an oral supplement providing high-level multi-strain probiotic bacteria to prevent diarrhoea in new born calves. It is the only probiotic which is medicinally licensed for the prevention of calf scour. It has been clinically proven to reduce calf scour by 83%.
Provita Protect suspension supplies 10 billion unique triple strain probiotic bacteria that rapidly colonise the sterile gut of the new born calf. These unique probiotic bacteria prevent harmful pathogens such as E Coli from attaching to the gut wall through competitive exclusion. The probiotic bacteria also produce lactic acid therefore lowering the pH in the gut further inhibiting harmful pathogens. The combination of more bacteria and lower pH also improves digestion as demonstrated by a 31% increase in growth rates in clinical trials.
Protect should be given to new born calves at birth; bought-in calves; after digestive upsets or after antibiotic therapy.
The Provita Response range provides colostrum, probiotic bacteria, egg powder and vitamins to give them an energy boost. This will improve gut condition, digestion and growth rates. It will also help to counteract common deficiencies in new born calves.
