The mineral to support during a liver fluke infection that may be used during lactation.
Liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) is a parasite which can cause huge damage. In cattle, lower milk production, stunted growth among calves, reduced fertility and lower immunity is observed. The costs of liver fluke are estimated at around 116 €/infection. Drugs used to combat liver fluke may not be given to lactating animals. Furthermore, resistance to these drugs seems to increase. The ethereal oils in TWILMIX Cattle Hepatica appear to work supportively.
A liver fluke infection damages the liver. Good liver function is essential to the animal’s performance. Silymarin is a powerful phytogenic which is specifically used to support liver function. Choline chloride plays an important role in transporting fats out of the liver.
Antioxidants like vitamin E, vitamin C and selenium play an important role in supporting the immune system. An increased awareness of the immune system increases the need for trace elements. Organically bound trace elements have good availability.
Practical experience with the TWILMIX Cattle Hepatica has shown positive results with regard to liver health, the general health status of the herd and antibodies in the blood.
