Many thrift related issues for newborn lambs arise from the ingestion of pathogenic organisms indigenous to the lambing pens and paddocks. Other than completely cleaning out the lambing area and sterilising, only a bout of extreme cold weather can sterilise these environments, so it is vital the lamb receives all the help it can get.
In theory, maternal colostrum or an adequate replacement such as Surestart® should provide the antibodies should provide the lamb with all the nutrition it needs but Colitox, with its EU approved pro-biotic, and range of trace element and vitamins, help ensure the lamb gets the best start in life.
Colitox® is a complementary feedingstuff containing EU approved Enterococcus faecium M74 NCIB 11181 which has a strong antipathogen activity. Just one feed of Colitox® usually provides the probiotic activity necessary to maintain the good health of the newborn lamb.
Colitox® is also a source of easily available energy and micronutrients including vitamins, trace elements and amino acids. For just a few pence, the lamb's good health and well-being can be assured.
As soon as possible after birth give all at risk lambs 2ml Colitox®. Weak or otherwise disadvantaged lambs should be given 2ml daily until their health and physical condition is satisfactory.
Only for feeding to lambs up to 21 days of age.
