Respiratory diseases are a major problem for the farming industry, specially in winter time. Antibiotics are widely administered both as a prevention and treatment, but there are increasing concerns due to meat residues and proliferation of resistances.

Respiratory disorders produce dyspnea, which is the partial occlusion of respiratory tract by exudates and mucus secretions. Dyspnea lowers oxygen concentration in blood and adds more stress to already stressed animals. This condition can happen along with disease and also as a secondary reaction to vaccines.

Essential oils contained in PlusBreathe© may alleviate cough, reduce throat inflammation and help to eliminate respiratory secretions. They also act as disinfectants of the respiratory tract, being antibacterial and antiviral.

The product promotes appetite and reduces stress. It can also be used for prevention at the end of the productive cycle of broilers.

It is indicated for poultry, ruminants, pigs and rabbits of all ages.
