How gut flora keep germs at bay

ESTABLISH and maintain a healthy balance of gut flora in ruminants using Lacteal Ruminant, says manufacturer Provita.

It claims the probiotic paste supplies a high dose of beneficial bacteria and polyclonal antibody protection against the pathogens E Coli K99, bovine rotavirus, salmonella and coronavirus.

Provita recommends using Lacteal Ruminant at birth, during disease outbreaks, and periods of stress including weaning, transport, appetite loss, and after antibiotic therapy.

Provita Lacteal Ruminant is available in 35g calibrated oral dosing syringes, for seven calf doses or 17 lamb doses, at £9.95 each (01662-252352).
