Diarrhoea

In cases of diarrhoea there is often thin, watery faecal waste. This may sometimes be accompanied by pain and intestinal cramps.   Diarrhoea can have a variety of causes, for example incorrect feed, infections (bacteria or viruses) or worms. In the case of an intestinal infection, the effects on health especially in young animals can be significant because irreparable damage to the intestinal wall occurs. Bacteria such as Clostridium and E.Coli, and the Rota and Corona viruses are well-known causes of diarrhoea.

The best way to prevent diarrhoea is to ensure good hygiene, the timely provision of sufficient colostrum and good resistance.

Bica Bolus

Diarrhoea in cows leads to the loss of large volumes of fluids and electrolytes, which results in acidosis (acidification). Cows affected with acidosis lose their desire to drink and this results in a dehydration and electrtolyte deficiencies.

  • Bica Bolus

    Stimulates the desire to drink and supplements a lack of electrolytes

    Diarrhoea in cows leads to the loss of large volumes of fluids and electrolytes, which results in acidosis (acidification). Cows affected with acidosis lose their desire to drink and this results in a dehydration and electrtolyte deficiencies.

    The Bica Bolus contains sodium bicarbonate, which corrects the acidosis. The prebiotics in the Bica Bolus stimulate the uptake of electrolytes. The Bica Bolus naturally encourages the desire to drink and helps prevent dehydration, thus improving bovine health.
