Digital Dermatitis/Availa®Plus FAQ
Digital Dermatitis (DD) is a common infectious foot disease in dairy and beef cattle herds. The disease begins when skin integrity is compromised and, if left untreated, DD lesions can lead to severe and debilitating lameness.
Availa®Plus, when fed as part of a specific DD Formula and a well-balanced diet, has been shown to significantly decrease DD prevalence and severity in non-lactating cattle. Availa-Plus contains a combination of Availa®Zn (zinc amino acid complex), Availa®Mn (manganese amino acid complex), Availa®Cu (copper amino acid complex), COPRO® (cobalt glucoheptonate) and potassium iodide.
