Pavo Colostrum - Colostrum replacement for newborn foals

About Pavo Colostrum

Foals do not receive antibodies from their mothers via the placenta and are thus born without any essential infection fighting antibodies in their blood. It is of vital importance that the foal receives antibody containing colostrum, preferably from its mother during the first 8 hours after birth. After this time the foal’s ability to absorb antibodies starts to decrease and the foal is no longer able to absorb the antibodies at 24 hours after birth. The antibodies the foal receives via colostrum protect the newborn foal from infection during the first months after birth.

On rare occasions the foal may not be able to suckle properly from the mare, or the mare dies during or directly after the birth. When the foal is not able to suckle from the mare always call your veterinarian for advice.
