Case of success: preventing gizzard problems with PlusBind and PlusProtect Digestive

Case of success: preventing gizzard problems with PlusBind and PlusProtect Digestive

A combination of PlusBind and PlusProtect Digestive is very effective to prevent proventriculus and gizzard problems

Gizzard problems are a common problem in farms all around the world. It is estimated that between 15% and 25% of the birds routinely necropsied, either broilers, breeders or layers, suffer from proventriculus or gizzard erosions. In recent years, the incidence is increasing, causing economic losses in poultry farms.

Many reasons can lead to proventiculus and gizzard diseases, such as mycotoxins, bacterial or viral infections, nutritional problems and stress (we discussed the causes of gizzard erosions in this article).

Recently, we tested a combination of PlusBind© and PlusProtect Digestive© in broiler farms with several difficult-to-treat cases of proventriculus and gizzard erosions to prevent the problems and the results were very satisfactory.
