Fysal® Fit-4 poultry is an innovative way to combat Salmonella. This multi disciplined product contains four different barriers that prevent Salmonella colonisation of the intestinal tract.
First barrier: combats Salmonella in feed and reduces Salmonella multiplication in the crop and stomach.
Second barrier: prevents attachment to intestinal enterocytes by blocking of the Salmonella receptors.
Third barrier: controls intestinal multiplication by killing Salmonella bacteria in the gut.
Fourth barrier: reduces virulence and thus prevents invasion of Salmonella into organs, thereby cutting back the number of carrier birds in the flock.
Trials show the multiple barrier approach to be very effective. Fysal Fit-4 poultry lowered the number of Salmonella in the caeca of birds by more than 96% and significantly reduced the risk of Salmonella transmission from bird to bird in a flock.
