Dry Cow Bolus

Oligovet Dry Cow Bolus
 Enhanced colostrum quality

 Reduces the risk of post calving disorders

 Improves the transfer of passive immunity to the calf via the colostrum

 Prepares the mother for the next reproduction cycle

 Eases the food transition

 Prepares flora and rumen papillae

 High levels of Iodine to improve calf performance

 Improved calf vitality

 Reduces SCC resulting in reduced costs

 Supplies sustained levels of trace elements and vitamins over a 90-day period

Watch Dr. Lauren Popiolek DVM discuss the importance of trace elements during the dry cow period. Lauren talks about the Oligovet Dry Cow Bolus and how its controlled daily release of trace elements covers the cow for 90 days. 
Electro Pidolate Bolus
Electro Pidolate Max Bolus
 2 boluses per cow at onset of calving

 40 hours of sustained activity

 Helps avoid metabolic issues

 Prevent costly clinical and subclinical milk fever

 Contains calcium pidolate and magnesium pidolate
Milk fever or clinical hypocalcaemia is a major threat on all farms. Electro Pidolate Max helps prevent hypocalcaemia by improving the amount of calcium in the blood.

Problems that may occur in cases of deficiency
This deficiency can lead to myopathies (nutritional muscular dystrophy) in young ruminant and fertility disorders (retained placenta and uterine involution) in adult animals due to a lack of prostaglandin. Both the mother’s and foetus’ immune system may be weakened. 
This deficiency may cause hypothyroidism (goitre) potentially leading to dysmetabolic disorders with different severity rates (bulimia or loss of appetite, hypothermia), respiratory distress, growth defects, weakened immunity, dermatitis and abortion.
This deficiency results in anaemia, loss of appetite and allotriophagy; consequently growth may be delayed, ultimately leading to cachexia (Immunosuppressive weakness)
This deficiency may lead to leg defects in young ruminants (bow legs and knuckling), metabolic disorders and infertility in adults.
This deficiency is responsible for barrenness, leg defects, various types of dermatitis and weakened immunity.
This deficiency may cause heart problems, lameness, barrenness, loss of appetite or allotriophagy (pica).
‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčThis deficiency may cause an iron-deficiency anaemia (loss of appetite and deficient growth). ‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč
A micro-diffusion, micro-porous structure with controlled electrolytic delivery. 

The porous structure of the bolus: based on the concept of a sponge enabling the passage and circulation of water from the external environment to the internal environment, promoting the continuous diffusion and release of trace elements. 

Incremental trace element solubility, based on various factors, such as pH, temperature of the environment, ionic strength, electrolyte concentration and stage of digestion (quantity of feed in the rumen). 
Salts specifically selected by Vétalis: oxides, carbonates, iodates, selenites, hydroxy analogues of selenomethionine, glycinates and chloride hydroxides broadly influence the solubility, diffusion and bio-availability of trace elements, as well as the choice of the various matrix excipients. 

Through controlled in vitro and in vivo dissolution, the electrolytic boluses enable the needs of the animals to be targeted, any deficiencies or sub-deficiencies to be covered and also, enable the discharge into the ground of unabsorbed ions or metallic salts to be limited.

Humans & Q Fever

Q Fever is zoonotic.  Professionals like vets, abattoir workers, farmers, farming employees and families are at increased risk of contracting Q Fever2. Infection usually occurs through inhalation of dust or aerosols containing the organism19.

60% of human infections will remain asymptomatic18.  In the acute symptomatic infections, the majority of people will have a flu-like syndrome20 with a small number needing hospitalisation for lung disease, hepatitis or meningitis21.  In 2% of cases the infection becomes chronic which can lead to disease of the heart valves or chronic fatigue syndrome21. If infected when pregnant women may suffer from abortions or preterm births22.

In the Netherlands outbreak between 2007 and 2010, there were more than 3,000 clinical cases recorded with sadly 24 deaths due to Q Fever. Overall, it is thought that in the region of 40,000 people were infected21!

In the UK there have also been clusters of cases23:

2002: South Wales 95 acute cases linked to renovation work in an office of a cardboard manufacturing plant24.

2006: 142 cases linked to airborne transmission form a sheep lairage of a meat processing plant25.

Overall, the incidence of human cases in the Ireland is low but with their increased risk, vets and farmers should be aware of the disease potential.
