pH-Control is a drinking water acidifier, which consists of a combination of free and buffered organic acids. With a focused action on gram-negative bacteria (such as Salmonella and E-Coli) in the drinking water, and at intestinal level, pH-Control supports good digestive function. Because of the additional acidification and the increased effectiveness of the intestinal acids, pH-Control has an overall positive effect on intestinal health and consequentially the performance of your pigeons.
Intestinal Health = Animal Health
Intestinal health is the key to healthy animals and high performance. The stomach and intestine are also responsible for the digestion of feed, containing billions of bacteria and provide the environment for the formation of immune-stimulating substances. Therefore, the focus should always be on the intestinal health. Organic acids can promote the balance in the intestine and lead to a significant reduction in the formation of harmful bacteria, such as E-coli, salmonella and trichomonads. In particular, in young birds, the immune system is still very susceptible to germs, since the intestinal flora is still under development, and as such may not give full protection. In addition to the inhibition of pathogenic germs, pH-Control also protects the desired lactic acid bacteria (lactobacillus) and thus provides optimal conditions for a healthy intestinal flora.
- Bacteria (E-Coli, salmonella), fungi and trichomonads are directly opposed.
- The drinking water is cleaned and the biofilm is reduced.
- The acids support the acidification of the stomach, particularly in young birds.
- Ammonium salt and ash/rowan acid works strongly against pathogenic germs in the digestive tract of the birds.
- The “good” microflora in the intestines is protected, intestinal health is supported.
- By activating the digestive enzymes conditions are created for optimal absorption of nutrients.
Advantages of buffered acids
pH-Control contains buffered organic acids, which form an integral part of how pH-Control works. They work not only in the crop, but also by the buffered acid into the stomach of the pigeons. The technical advantages of buffered acids are very important, because they facilitate the handling of acids and let the pH-value in the water, even in higher doses, not fall below a pH-value of 3.5. The optimal pH-value of approximately 4 in the drinking water retards the growth of salmonella, E.Coli, and trichomonads. In addition, the buffered acids are an important component of this acid mixture and inhibit the occurrence of undesirable enteric bacteria in the intestine. pH-Control uses ammoniumformate as a buffered component, which on the basis of their property of the release of hydrogen ions (H +), enhances the anti-bacterial effect of pH-Control. The high anti-bacterial effect of ammonium salt has been confirmed by several tests.
For a lasting reduction of microbial load, we recommend a dosage of 5ml pH-Control to 1 litre of drinking water. The drinking water will then show a pH-value of 4. When vaccination takes place or during the provision of medication, pH-Control should not be administered. Use of pH-Control when giving medication should be avoided at all costs. However, the concurrent use of pH-Control, Med. Tollyamin Forte and Dosto Oregano Liquid 12% is advisable. The high quality of our Oregano products enhances the anti-bacterial effect of pHControl. Moreover, the administration of Med. Tollyamin Forte encourages the natural drinking behaviour of the pigeons.
