WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES
CATINJ Catosal (Butaphosphan + Cyanocobalamin) is used to treat deficiencies of the blood and improves metabolism in animals with low energy or experiencing stress. This product also aids in the recovery from ketosis associated with displaced abomasums in dairy cows, increase litter sizes in farrowing sows, and reduce cortisol levels in stressed animals.
Horses, cattle, swine, and poultry require vitamin B12 as an essential element for cell growth, maturation, energy product, reproductively, and hair growth. The deficiency of this vitamin is better known as a Cobalt deficiency commonly seen in areas of Australia. Cobalt is a natural element animals take in from the soil and pasture. Cobalt is then combined with micro-organisms within the stomach to formulate vitamin B12.
This essential vitamin is then absorbed through the small intestine and transported throughout the body’s blood, also stored in the liver. An animal which is not absorbing this essential vitamin will develop symptoms such as weepy eyes, scaly ears, rough hair coat, diarrhea, anemia, decreased appetite, weight loss, and muscle depression. Due to inadequate nutrients within the pasture, these animals will begin to waste away leading to infertility, low birth weights, decreased growth rates, poor milk quality, and overall lower production.
The health of an animal reflexes the time and dedication placed by the pet handler. Vitamin B12 deficient animals are prone to infections of disease due to the impaired immune system. An animal which is not absorbing this essential vitamin will develop symptoms such as weepy eyes, scaly ears, rough hair coat, diarrhea, anemia, decreased appetite, weight loss, and muscle depression.
