Added Protection For Foals With New Actimune Foal Gel
has been gaining popularity in the UK to help horses cope with stressful
situations, such as training, traveling or weaning, giving them
added protection against viral and bacterial infection when they
are most susceptible.
Now the UK distributor, American Thoroughbred Products Ltd, has
announced the arrival of the new ACTIMUNE FOAL GEL. Specially developed
to provide added protection to foals from birth, ACTIMUNE FOAL GEL
supplies nutrients to help stimulate the immune function at this
vulnerable stage in the foal's life. ACTIMUNE FOAL GEL is packed
in an easy to administer syringe that contains 60cc of gel sufficient
for four days.
the foal's digestive system is more developed and he is eating hard
food, he can be switched to the feed supplement form of Actimune.
This unique feed supplement has been developed to maintain a healthy
immune system and can be useful for horses of any age.
Many breeders are now starting with a regime that includes Actimune
to ensure maximum resistance to viruses at an early stage. The Cheveley
Park Stud, Newmarket, is an advocate of starting young. A spokesman
said "We have fed Actimune to a selected number of our foals
and yearlings over the past 12 months and early indications are
that Actimune does boost their immune system, giving these individuals
a noticeably better defense against virus attack".
Dr Jean Lamb, a veterinary surgeon from Kentucky, has had outstanding
results. "I feed Actimune to thoroughbred foals and yearlings
under my care as well as my own competition horses. In all cases
I have seen how Actimune, by maximizing the effectiveness of the
immune system, enables horses to resist infection. Actimune also
has some important side benefits, including maintaining appetite
under high stress conditions. I would recommend Actimune to anyone
wanting to maximize a horse's ability to keep itself healthy without
resorting to the use of prescription drugs".
