AHD has been a trusted supplier of metabolic injections to the New Zealand dairy (and sheep) market for over 5 years. This year will see a fresh new presentation to the range.
Improvements have been made to the packaging, moving away from plastic outer containers to sturdy boxes. Each brand will come with its own colour coded box for easy product identification.
Essentially everything else remains the same, Each bag label is colour coded to match the box. And like no other metabolic injectable treatment the AHD range is completely endotoxin free so our solutions are not pyrogenic, we guarantee it.
The brand names remain the same and are;
For the OTC range MetaBoost 4 in 1 and MetaBoost CBG
For the Vet only range this is still called Blue Cross Metaboost 4 in 1 and MetaBoost CBG.
Formulations, these remain the proven trusted formulations as supplied by AHD over the last 5 years or more, the 4 in1 formulation has; 27.6g/L calcium,(>3g/L) Magnesium Hypohosphite 4.8g/L. Phosphorus 12.2g/L (>.2g/L) and Dextrose 181.6g/L (>7g/L) .
If feeding management isn’t right in the transition to calving then you are likely to get animal health problems.
Often these problems are associated with complex processes of metabolism Common conditions include Grass Staggers due to low concentration of magnesium in the blood, Milk Fever occurring when concentration of calcium in the blood is too low and Ketosis arising when the cow is consuming less energy than she is producing.
When a cow is down it may be difficult to determine which of the above conditions was the initial problem. Therefore a good transition system is important as with metabolic conditions prevention is better than cure.
