For A Healthy New Born Foal
Cavalor Colostra provides vital colostrum for newborn foals when this cannot be supplied by the mare, or not in sufficient amounts
Newborn foals are born without any antibodies and must absorb these through the colostrum within 24 hours of their birth. If a foal has received little or no colostrum for whatever reason, it is vital to compensate for this deficit. Cavalor Colostra increases the level of immunoglobulins in the blood.
In mammals, including horses, embryos receive (almost) no antibodies through the placenta while in the womb. This means that to achieve immunity, foals are entirely dependent on the antibodies they obtain from quality colostrum during the first few hours after birth.
The absorption of antibodies from colostrum is highest within the first 6 to 8 hours after birth. 24 hours after a foal’s birth, it will no longer be able to absorb antibodies via the colostrum.
Immunoglobulin deficiency occurs in orphan foals, but also in foals of mares with low levels of colostrum, none at all or only of insufficient quality. Too few immunoglobulins will increase a foal’s risk of developing infectious diseases such as diarrhoea or other complaints.
Cavalor Colostra contains natural substances (freeze-dried colostrum) that are essential to foals’ healthy growth. Cavalor Colostra is safe to use for all foals and consists of at least 30% immunoglobulins.
Instructions for Use
Mix the contents of 1 package (100g) of Cavalor Colostra with 0.2 L of Cavalor Hyppolac or water. Stir well until the powder is completely dissolved.
Use a bottle with a teat to administer Cavalor Colostra. Caution: Do not heat in the microwave, as this will destroy the immunoglobulins.
If the foal received no colostrum from the mare: Administer Cavalor Colostra within 6 hours after birth and repeat again after 12-16 hours.
If the foal received too little colostrum via the mare: Administer Cavalor Colostra within 24 hours after birth.
Cavalor Colostra can also be administered as a preventive measure during the first 24 hours to ensure that the foal receives sufficient antibodies.
