The first to bring the benefits of colistin to the pig industry back in 2005, CEVA Animal Health has now introduced Colibird, the UK’s first colistin-based soluble antimicrobial approved for poultry.

According to the company, colistin is an important active in the UK’s antimicrobial armoury, with a potent bactericidal action against Gram-negative bacteria, including enterobacteria and more particularly E. coli. Colibird is only one of a handful of products approved for layers that has a zero egg withhold.

It also has almost zero levels of resistance, even with bugs variously resistant to other antimicrobials and is easily and efficiently administered in drinking water via header tanks or dosing pumps.
