Each 50 gm contains: Vitamin K3                           500 mg Carrier (water soluble)           Q.S.
Vitamin K deficiency results in a reduction of prothombin content in blood. Maintaining the prothombin level in blood is essential for clotting mechanism.
VITAMIN K DEFICIENCY OCCURS DUE TO FOLLOWING CONDITIONS
- • Disease condition with severe hemorrhages (i.e. Coccidiosis)
- • Young chicks are readily affected by vitamin K defiecnecy (because of low plasma prothombin level)
- • Low dietary level of vitamins in diet
- • Low dietary level of vitamins in the maternal diet affect young chicks
- • Lack of intestinal synthesis of vitamin K
- • Higher usage of Antimicrobials (especially sulphonamides)
- • To reduce blood loss during Coccidiosis.
- • To reduce stress due to blood loss.
- • To improve laying in peak production after debeaking.
- • Breeder diets should be well fortified with Vitamin K to avoid Hemorrhagic syndrome in day-old chicks.
Chicks / Growers - 8-10 gms / 100 Ltrs of drinking water for 5 days During Coccidiosis - 20 gm / 100 liters of drinking water
