Getway is a colostrum substitute for foals.
Formulated to support the immune defences and reduce the risk of neonatal disease. It is specially formulated to provide the foal with good passive immunity in all those circumstances in which the dam’s colostrum is inadequate: debilitated broodmares, mares with mastitis, mares with inadequate colostrum or are reluctant to feed their foals and in situations where mares colostrum is not available.
Composition: whey powder proteins, colostrum powder.
Analytical constituents: Crude Protein 76%; Crude fibre 3%; Crude oils and fats 8%; Crude Ash 0%; Sodium 0.17%
Immunoglobulin Profile (100 g)
Instructions for a proper use:
Orphan foals of medium size: a 450 g sachet in 1 L of hot water.
Foals born to first-time mothers, or in which the intake of colostrum was incomplete: ½ of the sachet in 0.5 L of hot water. Reconstitute the product by pouring 500 ml of water with a temperature of 40°C into a clean container. Gradually add all the powder in the sachet, stirring thoroughly. Once a homogeneous suspension has been obtained, add a further 500 mL of hot water and continue stirring until fully homogenised. Administer to the foal at 38/40°C in the first few moments of its life, as antibody absorption is greatest within the first 2 hours from birth and gradually drops to 0 after 20/36 hours.
New-born foals with good vitality can be bottle fed; foals with poor vitality, which may not have a deglutition reflex, should be fed using a nasogastric tube. Start administration as early as possible, splitting it into several feeds until the whole dose has been taken.
