The need to guarantee swine absorption of a correct amount of nutrients in the intestine cannot disregard the degradation by the swine microflora. For over 30 years our scientific research has set the goal to improve the swine bypass so that a lower concentration of active ingredients in the diet leads to maximizing performance.


AviPlus®S is the 3rd generation of Vetagro innovative products for swine. AviPlus®S is an 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 to restore the integrity of the intestinal epithelial lining thus improving growth performance and FCR in pigs. Its 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 gastrointestinal tract. The absolute innovation of AviPlus®S resulting from 30 years of global market experience has been proven by international patents.


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 swine. AviPlus®S is safe for the animals, the consumer and the environment as stated by the European Union.

    The impact that a molecule can have on animal metabolism and physiological functions is strictly linked to different modes of action of the molecule itself. These activities must be studied and well known to use the nutrition favoring both animal health and production effectively.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the potential adjuvant effect of thymol to re-establish antibiotic efficacy against highly resistant ETEC field strains. Secondly, we evaluated the modulation of virulence and antibiotic resistance genes.

    In this study we tested four antibiotics (tylosin, lincomycin, doxycycline, and tiamulin) and medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA; hexanoic, octanoic, decanoic, and dodecanoic acid) against an Italian field strain of B. hyodysenteriae and the ATCC 27164 strain as reference.
