Intestinal health issues in poultry and livestock are a constant concern for producers around the world.
CLOSTAT is a non-species specific animal feed ingredient that can help improve gut health and the overall efficiency of poultry and livestock.
The active microbial in CLOSTAT, Bacillus subtilus PB6, acts as a natural defense mechanism against pathogenic strains of bacteria without causing antibiotic resistance or residue issues.
Beyond the key benefits and well-studied mechanism of action, CLOSTAT offers the following formulation benefits:

It is important to check the droppings around the drinkers on a daily basis for consistency. If changes are observed, call your veterinarian for expert advice.
Avian Droppings reveal important information for the poultry producer and are a good indicator of the health status of the bird. Experience is necessary in order to monitor the health of the flock via observing changes in fecal and cecal droppings on a daily basis.
Close scrutiny of the droppings on a daily basis is the best available method to prevent disease. This monitoring system allows the producer to identify the very first signs of an altered health balance. Taking an action at an early stage, promotes the control of disorders before they have time to become a problem.
Any of these changes can be caused by stress, certain feed, or can be a sign of disease.
Diarrhea is when the fecal material is not holding its tubular shape. Instead its consistency is loose and more like the consistency of pudding.
There are different types of diarrhea
