VITAMIN K “AVICO”

 

 

A water soluble powder for oral administration


Composition: Each 1 gm. contains:
Vit. K3 (Menadion Sodium Bisulphite) 1.25 mg.
Properties:
Vitamin K is essential for the formation of prothrombin in the liver, and the lack of this vitamin results in hypothrombinaemia. Lack of prothrombin in the blood breaks the chain of events which results in the formation of blood clots, so that, when small contusions occur, prolonged bleeding follows with the formation of large haematomata and the development of severe haemorrhagic anemia and haemolytic jaundice. The haemorrhagic syndrome due to Vitamin K deficiency in poultry is a common occurrence during stress conditions (e.g. diseases, bad weather, debeaking, vaccination, false medication etc.). In such cases, it is recommended to administer adequate high levels of Vitamin K into the birds as rapidly as possible.
Indications:
Vitamin K is indicated, mainly, for the prevention and treatment of haemorrhagic troubles in poultry as well as in the presence of coccidiosis and Gumboro disease.
