CEVA Animal Health has introduced the UK’s only equine montmorillonite product with prebiotics.
According to the company, new Diarsanyl Plus helps support the gut of new-born foals and calves and maintain a normal balance of intestinal flora, presenting a simple and cost-effective way to nip digestive upsets in the bud.
The key ingredient is montmorillonite, which can absorb the gut toxins produced in digestive upsets 90 times more effectively than kaolin.
Diarsanyl Plus also contains the prebiotics fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), which are scientifically proven to maintain normal intestinal flora by promoting the growth of “good bacteria” such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli at the expense of potentially harmful pathogenic bacteria. FOS also stimulate the production of the short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) acetate, propionate and butyrate, which are important energy sources for the large intestine and bicarbonate precursors suppressing acidosis.
With electrolytes and dextrose in the formulation too, this new product can help boost energy and aid recovery. The palatable paste formulation enhances absorption, while the ready-to-use, calibrated oral syringe makes for quick, easy and accurate administration.
Each syringe contains sufficient for a complete three-day course of treatment. For scouring calves and foals Diarsanyl can be used in conjunction with CEVA’s oral hydration product Rehydion gel.
