New technical-veterinary training session in Costa Rica to DICPMI
A veterinary team of Biovet S.A. moved to Central America to provide training
Mycotoxin binders, intestinal conditioners, liver regenerators and immunobooster products, central issues of the training session given to a technical team of the DIPCMI group company in Costa Rica. The conference was led by a veterinary team of Biovet S.A. Also, during the meeting the main avian pathologies and their possible solutions, were exposed.
During the meeting, Dr. Francisco Giral, veterinarian from Biovet, highlighted the importance of "the solutions at field level, through the application of our products in liquid presentation, considered as a viable solution for the reception of the chicks. The liquid products of Biovet, manufactured with pronutrient ‘natural extracts’-based, allow to improve the physiological conditions of animals from the first day of life, in stress situations".
Under stress conditions animals do not ingest solids immediately, so in these cases, "it is better to receive them with intestinal conditioners products soluble in drinking water, which are a practical and efficient way of administration, in critical stages such like the reception of birds", he explained.
With respect to the mycotoxin binders, its main benefit is the prevention of the pathologies associated with the presence of these toxins (mycotoxicosis), due to the ingestion of food contaminated by mycotoxins. In this sense Dr. Giral emphasized the product Alquerfeed Binmold and explained that "its effectiveness lies in its composition that it has Silicoglicydol, a molecule patented by Biovet, which works efficiently at low doses of (0.5 kg / tm), with high binding capability and with the added value of not adsorbing in its structure other products such as hydro and liposoluble vitamins. In addition, it has preservative properties because it contains in its composition salts of organic acids that control bacteria, fungi and yeasts".
For its part, intestinal conditioners are products "based on pronutrients of natural origin which are very important to optimize intestinal health," said the Veterinarian. In this case, one of the solutions presented was Alquernat Nebsui, which can be used in all stages and throughout the whole life of the animals, being an alternative to antibiotics growth promoters.
"Alquernat Livol is a liver regenerator, based on pronutrients, which is presented in both, powder and oral solution. Its importance lies in that it counteracts the effect of hepatotoxic substances such as mycotoxins, drugs or free radicals, which allows the proper functioning of the liver, a fundamental multifunctional organ in the synthesis of proteins”, said Giral.
He then underlined that the pronutrients are of great importance in poultry farming, since the mechanism of action of these molecules of natural origin -contained in small quantities in certain plants-, make them an alternative to antibiotics growth promoters and chemical coccidiostats.
In this sense, pronutrients allow the reduction of the use of chemical additives in animal production, which improves food safety and the productive parameters of the poultry industries.
Regarding the immunobooster products, during the conference the characteristics of Alquernat Inmuplus were highlighted, for "its benefits as a general immunobooster and for being an important tool to substantially improve the immune response associated with the vaccination processes".
Finally, the meeting concluded with a lecture over the main pathologies affecting the poultry sector and the solutions offered by Biovet S.A. Laboratorios, a company founded in 1984 by a group of veterinarians and chemists. Since its formation, the company has focused on the development of products that maintain both animal welfare and productivity parameters.
