Toxins are continuously produced in birds. If these are not neutralized or removed from the body they tend to expose the birds to stress. The stress brings in several biochemical changes within the bird’s body, mainly out of defence and protection priorities. The further leads to chain of reactions such as more accumulation of toxins, disfunctioning of vital organs, lowering of resistance of bacterial infections and ultimate death. Even survived, there is no more chances for low productivity and hence very major economic loss.
ADCOMP is a herbal feed supplement based on the science of vitalizing the body activity and helps the body to develop natural defence and toxin excertion system.
Ammonix an ammonia degrading powder is specially developed to knock down ammonia generated in poultry litter. Ammonix is a dry, free flowing powder prepared form a group of ammonia oxidizing microoganisms which utilize ammonia as their main nutrient for growth. They secrete a mixture of ammonia oxidizing enzymes which sequentially oxidize ammonia to hydroxyl-amine and then to nitrite. Nitrite is further degraded by other microorganisms present in the litter to nitrates.
Uric acid is the form in which birds excrete the NH3 produced in protein metabolism.Nitrates increase Nitrogen content of the litter enriching its fertilizer value.
Normally harmful effects of ammonia are noticed after 3 weeks of age, hence application of Ammonix is recommended from 21 days onwards on weekly basis.
Acidification of drinking water is a novel concept introduced into the field of poultry management. Hardness & alkalinity of water originate due to dissolved salts of calcium and magnesium in the subsoil water (i.e. borewell and tubewell). If the drinking water for poultry is made slightly acidic with buffered acidifier, it helps the flocks in many ways. Acidification controls multiplication of enteropathogens like E. coli, Salmonella & Pseudomonas. It also helps in making conditions favourable for colonization of useful bacteria like lactobacilli and streptococci within small intestine of birds. Absorption of calcium and antibiotics through gut wall is also facilitated.

The requirement of calcium in modern day poultry is enormous. A major portion of dietary calcium is used in bone formation in chicks, growers and broilers and for eggshell formation in layers. Laying poultry requires more calcium because of calcium carbonate content of eggshell. It is also well documented that as age advances the ability to absorb dietary calcium decreases.
The control of calcium and phosphorus metabolism in the bird is a complex phenomenon involving vitamin D3, Parathormone from the parathyroid gland and calcitonin from the C cells of the thyroid glands.
In recent years it has been observed that inspite of meeting the dietary requirements of calcium in right proportions incidences of perosis, lag weakness, cage layer fatique and thin shelled eggs are on the increase. This could probably be due to the fact that adequate free phosphorus might not be made available in the system for better utilization of calcium.
It is proved that about 80% of body phosphorus is deposited in the skeletal system of the birds. The rest is widely distributed throughout the body and is primarily involved in transfer of biological energy particularly through adenosine triphosphate. Phosphorus excrcises an important function in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats and salts, also play a very important part in maintaining body pH.
Perosis, cage layer fatigue, lag weakness and thin shelled eggs also occur due to deficiency of choline, manganese, zinc, vitamin B12, folic acid, pyridoxine and pantothenic acid.

Vacci-Boost is a unique feed supplement designed to achieve most efficient take of live vaccine.Vacci-Boost contains special herbal extracts having strong immunomodulating activity.Vacci-Boost also has capacity to neutralize residual chlorine in drinking water and to impart bluecolor to reconstituted vaccine water. This blue color proves to be helpful in monitoring uniform vaccine administration as it remains visible on bird's beak for atleast 3 to 4 hours post vaccination.
|Skim milk powder||Vacci-Boost|
|Only partial neutralization of residual chlorine in water||Complete removal of residual chlorine from water|
|Causes lumps hence uniform suspension is not possible||
|May cause choking of nipples and drinker holes leading subsequently to bacterial slime formation||
|No known immuno modulating effect||

The birds in general are very sensitive to respiratory infections. Dust is one of the major predisposing causes in the shade.Others important causes are viral, bacterial and parasitic infections. The losses due to respiratory infections are very high. RESPIPOL has been designed to improve the vital functioning of the entire respiratory track starting from nasal passage to lungs. RESPIPOL helps the bird to improve resistance against respiratory infections.
COFNIX is a combination of time tested modern ingredients to combat all the symptoms associated with respiratory tract infections.
Antihistamines possess some degree of antitussive action particularly when cough is associated with histamine release. Diphenhydramine HCI with bronchodilators is effective as anti cough agent. Ammonium chloride is a saline expectorant, which increases airway mucus secretion and helps to dilute the irritant for better pulmonary drainage. Hence mucolytics and mucokinetics play an important role in treating respiratory allergy/infection.

Colonization of pathogenic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the bird has been a persistent problem faced by the poultry industry. The enteropathogenic and enteroinvasive bacteria entering into the digestive tract of the chicken constantly assault the gut epithelium. The normal flora of chicken gut is a complex and dynamic ecosystem of varied microbial populations. This microflora helps in digestion and prevents colonization of the intestinal wall by undesirable becteria like Clostridium, E.coli and Salmonella. Predominant members of normal flora include microaerophilic lactic acid bacteria like lactobacilli, bifidobacteria and streptococci.Frequent and prolonged use of gut acting antibiotics and systemic antibiotics invariably bring down the normal population of these desirable bacteria. This makes way for overgrowth of the potentially invasive and pathogenic bacteria causing conditions like bacterial enteritis, septicemia and loose droppings which lead to production losses. Gutpro contains high count of desirable lactic acid bacteria (live probiotic cultures in lyophilized form) which keep on proliferating in the gut microenvironment thereby suppressing the overgrowth of undesirable bacteria. Healthy gut of the bird directly reflects on the best performance in broiler, layer and breeder. Regular administration of Gutpro reduces unwanted use of antibiotics.
