Poultry Farming vaccination and Oral Medication


How to cure your poultry animals without using drugs

Not every disease requires drugs, Drug usage has become an unavoidable phenomenon in Poultry farms all over the country.

 Intensive poultry farming has caused the Incessant administration of drugs or medications for myriads of reasons.

Most poultries industry in Africa especially western part are so addicted to recommending and administering only drugs to their livestocksas, these farmers have become obsessed with drugs usage even in situations where it's unnecessary.

Reasons for drug use on birds:

1. As a panacea for poor biosecurity practices.

2. To mitigate issues associated with the rampant cases of poor day-old chicks.

3. Faulty management practices leading to diseases.

4. As a preventive protocol against persistent endemic infections.

5. Farmers use drugs to make up for the compromise usually practiced during nutritional formulations.

6. For growth enhancement as a result of greed and impatience.

Notwithstanding the importance and necessity for the discreet use of drugs, there are situations in which drug use is not indicated at all.

The need for the investigative approach to diagnosis and unraveling the causes of mortality and poor performance can not be undermined.

Examples of scenarios where antibiotics are contra-indicated:

1. Problems associated with subjecting birds to temperature extremes.

2. Stunting due to under-nutrition.

3. Poor and un-uniformed growth as a result of overcrowding.

4. Episodes of mortality due to stampede.

5. Certain forms of toxicity.

6. Poor performance due to negligence in management.

7. Disease conditions with a bad prognosis

I must not fail to mention that the uncensored use of antibiotics in Livestock farms has led to a massive situation of antimicrobial resistance in humans.

Many times, failure to appropriately understand causes and effects will lead to needless drug administration.

You can keep your birds and animals off medication by supplementing  their water with Sangrovit , on a daily basis to keep them Healthy in a natural way, Gut Healthy most important.
