n recent years there has been a rapid spread of drug-resistance phenomena by fungi, bacteria and viruses that represents a serious danger to animal and human health. At Deatech we know how important it is to carry out preventive and effective treatments on the farm.
The frequent administration of drugs for therapeutic veterinary use is found in the form of residues in the food we consume every day. It is therefore important to act preventively on animal health with natural essential oils because, compared to conventional medicine, they have the advantage of effectively limiting infections by excluding drug-resistance phenomena.
The faeces of animals treated with conventional drugs are rich in medicinal and chemical residues. Their dispersion in the environment generates an environmental pollution that exposes breeders, workers and veterinarians to high risks for their health. To maintain a good quality of the breeding environment, it is important to use essential oils because they avoid the accumulation of drugs in animal faeces preventing the proliferation in breeding of resistant pathogens.
Prevention and wellness
Reducing the administration of drugs, integrating natural essential oils in the diet, is a valid solution to improve animal welfare. This is directly reflected in the quality of life of the farmer who, having healthy animals, will reduce therapeutic actions and costs related to care.
How they act
Essential oils are absorbed through the mucous membranes and the skin and enter the lymphatic and blood circulation to then reach the target organs. Unlike conventional drugs, essential oils, consisting of different molecules, act simultaneously on several pathogenic microorganisms. They can be administered within the livestock ration or in drinking water. They are also used locally through dermatological solutions for the treatment of skin lesions and as a gel or ointment in the event of inflammation and trauma. The great interest in the use of essential oils lies in the fact that they are natural molecules of vegetable origin, extracted from aromatic plants. For these reasons they are also used in phytotherapy, the practice that uses medicinal plants containing, in one or more of its organs (flowers, fruits, seeds, leaves, buds, roots, tubers), substances used for preventive purposes. In a European context aimed at reducing the use of drugs, using natural anti-inflammatories and effective probiotics is a strategic solution to enhance the immune response.
