Benefits in general
RESPITE is a natural blend of fruit acids derived from English herbs and genetically selected garlic cloves containing a high concentration of "ALLICIN" , A well established bactericide.
Brooding and Rearing of poultry
RESPITE can help the chicks to a good start - especially if there is any evidence of poor quality 'non-starters' or 'yolk sac infection'. Bring it into use also for stress around vaccination, any environmental stress and any disease. If the bird scour, RESPITE can help to bring the birds back to normality.
Broiler Breeders
RESPITE is an excellent PROPHYLACTIC and THERAPEUTIC and is well renowned for its ability as an Expectorant, thereby eliminating accumulations of mucous secretions in the sinuses and air passages. This gives vast relief to stressful breathing.
Equally pertinent, the natural acidifiers also reduce the pH in the intestines and will help to repel the possible invasion of secondary pathogens. It is essential to administer the RESPITE in the drinking water with great speed since this can prevent the secondaries getting a hold altogether, NEVER DELAY. The warning signs are when you hear the birds "SNICKING" - a harsh type of sneeze, and a clicking noise which is the forerunner to what are known as "rales" which are moist nasal sounds combined with discharges after the secondaries have moved in.
Respiratory diseases may be caused by the multitude of viruses and other pathogens - such as infectious Bronchitis and several variants Mycoplasma, Avian Rhino-Tracheitis, and in certain cases even parasitic forms when the birds are exposed to earth flooring or Free·Range. The garlic content of RESPITE is well established as an aid to eliminating parasitic infections of the respiratory and intestinal tracts. A very real benefit of RESPITE is its ability to enhance the palpability of the drinking water, which can be an enormous benefit in times of stress and strains when birds may become dehydrated. This is of benefit to Broilers, Breeders and Commercial Layers improving the appetite and food conversion efficiency. Broiler carcasses will suffer less down grading and rejection as well if the flesh and skin are nicely moist.
As new regulations are reducing or eliminating the use of antibiotics in poultry, RESPITE can become the routine prophylactic to replace them - and is a natural organic universally accepted alternative. It is clearly a product to keep by you at all times so it can be utilised without delay whenever indicated. The poultry farmer is strongly advised to develop a RESPITE ROUTINE for all flocks.
RESPITE boosts innate resistance to infections; it stimulates appetite and water consumption. RESPITE is antagonistic to several highly pathogenic micro organisms and encourages the multiplication of beneficial bacteria. RESPITE improves the condition of the intestines and supplies valuable micronutrients and especially crucial vitamins.
RESPITE is remarkably easy to use being a completely soluble product. There are no contra indications, no residues, no problems of disposal, no incompatibilities.
It can be used alongside vaccines, sera or medicinal products where required.
There are many natural environmental stresses affecting broiler breeders when RESPITE is indicated. They also suffer severely at times from disease challenges such as Infectious Bronchitis Variants and Avian Rhino-tracheitis. To help them to recover use RESPITE. o Also use it when the birds suffer from sudden egg drops, poor quality shells and a condition of unknown cause the sudden 'Death Syndrome'.
Ensure RESPITE is used speedily when any problem appears since it is never incompatible with medicinal products.
Use RESPITE whenever there are complaints of chick quality.
Free Range and Barn Layers
New disease challenges are emerging with the development of these systems. Welfare and environmentally friendly they may be but the birds can be severely challenged with the weather, cold, parasites and soil-borne bacteria and fungi; RESPITE can help the birds over all these stresses with a well considered programme of regular use.
Broilers are growing faster than ever and in larger and larger units. They need support over the whole period of growth. At vaccination, at periods of environmental stress, RESPITE is invaluable. Many disease challenges cause immuno-suppression so ordinary medicines are comparatively ineffective. RESPITE can be used to assist and overcome the disease. As the broilers life is so short, it is imperative that RESPITE is put in the water speedily - indeed anticipation and prevention are everything.

Turkey Breeders
Stags and hens have great value and need every care in their management, and indeed they usually get it. Nevertheless they still suffer the stress and challenges that are invariably the way in livestock husbandry and RESPITE can help to pull them through. The vaccinations that are essential, the weather and the environmental changes are always there. And recently there have been a number of viral 'strikes' on birds that are of unknown origin. It is best to keep a supply of RESPITE handy so it may be used immediately there is any indication of trouble.
Commercial Turkeys from day-old to slaughter
Turkey poults are notoriously difficult to rear and 'starve-outs' occur for no apparent reason. RESPITE may be used to help attract and stimulate the desire for food and water. Turkeys during rearing are afflicted with a large number of infections such as Turkey Rhino-tracheitis, Pasteurella infections and E.coli. Recently, with adults, viral 'strikes' have occurred which cause scouring and unevenness. There is no specific treatment and vaccine to prevent them, but RESPITE has a place in alleviating the effects. Whatever the challenge, RESPITE is there to help, to fill in gaps in nutrition, improve feed absorption, boost immunity, improve appetite and reduce the effects of pathogens.
Ducks are commonly subject to large numbers of infections, not least because they tend to be kept' in large numbers in limited locations which precipates the challenge. Lethal viral challenges such as Duck Viral Hepatitis, heavy secondary infections, such as pasteurella and E.coli, common fungal infections such as Aspergillus fumigatus and mycotoxicosis and the ever present risk of salmonellosis, do all add up to very severe health risks that are of so wide a spectrum that a product like RESPITE can give the bird the overall boost ~ needs in resisting all that the ducks are challenged with.
