AviPlus® S

AviPlus® S is the 3rd generation of VETAGRO products for swine. A synergistic microencapsulated blend of organic acids and nature-identical compounds. AviPlus®S is registered at EU level as feed additive.

EFFICIENCY

AviPlus® S is the 3rd generation of Vetagro innovative products for swine. AviPlus® S is a EU zootechnical feed additive to increase the growth rate and feed efficiency of healthy pigs.

Conditions like stress at weaning and dysbacteriosis, which all affect intestinal health, integrity and functioning of the gut, have an impact on feed efficiency. AviPlus® S may help restoring the integrity of the intestinal epithelial lining thus improving growth performance and FCR in pigs. AviPlus® S mechanism of action is based on the unique properties of its ingredients which synergistically improve the intestinal barrier function thus increasing the efficiency of nutrient absorption and growth.

AviPlus® S is fully traceable in premixes, complete feed, and even along the gastro-intestinal tract. The absolute innovation of AviPlus® S resulting from 30 years of global market experience has been proven by international patents.

REGULATORY

The EU Commission approved the use of AviPlus® S as a zootechnical feed additive with the identification number 4d3 for safe and effective swine production. AviPlus® S zootechnical performance, as reviewed and approved by EFSA under EU conditions, increases growth rate and improves feed efficiency in healthy swines. AviPlus® S is safe for the animals, the consumer and the environment as stated by the European Union.
