OptiPig® Paste and Water Soluble are nutritional supplements administered in paste or water forms to pigs during periods of stress and digestive upsets. The OptiPig products provide a natural source of select nutrients to improve the nutritional well-being, metabolism, and productivity of the pig.
Pigs are vulnerable to a wide range of threats from disease and environmental stressors in the first few weeks of life. Exposure to pathogens can result in digestive upsets and imbalances that lead to scours and dehydration. If severe enough, death can result. The OptiPig products can help support the pig’s digestive system by providing a source of non-pathogenic beneficial bacteria in addition to supplying globulin proteins to help maintain health during these times of challenge.
OptiPig Paste and Water Soluble are not drugs or antibiotics, but contain a blend of direct fed microbials to support digestive function and healthy gut microflora.
