EcoTrace Fe is used for the enrichment and balancing of diets for farm animals and poultry in terms of iron content. Iron in diets is necessary for the formation of hemoglobin; it participates in oxidation-reduction reactions. Recommended in case of manifestation of such symptoms as lethargy, loss of appetite, delayed weight gain, pale mucous membranes, and atrophy of the lingual papillae, which are indicative of a lack of iron in the diet. It is also necessary in case of absence in the diet of calves of any feed other than whole milk or skimmed milk. Iron poisoning is accompanied by diarrhea, metabolic acidosis, hypothermia, decreased appetite and delayed weight gain. The optimal dose of iron in the diets of animals and poultry prevents the development of anemia.
