Collovet is a restorative and appetite stimulant. It is formulated to provide those essential elements most often lacking in an animal recovering from illness or subjected to severe bodily exertion caused by intense or prolonged exercise, high standards of production or performance.
Collovet is an extremely palatable water soluble liquid manufactured in Australia by Ruth Consolidated Industries Pty Ltd. It is readily accepted by all animals, increasing mental alertness and capacity for muscular work. It is most useful where animals are suffering from performance or handling stress and where they are off their feed or suffering from "training off syndrome" or recovering from illness.
It is especially helpful during intensive training programmes to maintain progressive conditioning or to assist in overcoming post-competitive fatigue or to promote "bloom" in show animals.
WHAT DOES COLLOVET CONTAIN?
Active Ingredients: Potassium glycerophosphate - 24.0g/L ; Ferric ammonium citrate - 23.0g/L; Sodium glycerophosphate - 21.8g/L; Caffeine citrate - 12.0g/L; Manganese sulphate - 2.2g/L; Thiamine hydrochloride- 0.2g/L
HOW DOES COLLOVET WORK?
High performance animals are subjected to many small stresses often overlooked, but which when combined, often have a serious effect on performance. To counteract these performance restraints Collovet contains 7 key elements:
1.STOMACHICS which stimulate the gastric juices and help get the performance animal back on its feed.
2.IRON - a source of organic complexed iron to help build up haemoglobin levels in the blood stream and increase the supply of oxygen to the muscles.
3.STIMULANT, which increases the activity of the central nervous system and gives the performance animal a sense of well being and improves the muscular efficiency.
4.POTASSIUM AND SODIUM - to help replace body metabolites which can become deficient under stress of racing, eventing, polo, endurance or heavy training.
5.ORGANIC PHOSPHORUS - helps in the transfer of energy to muscles.
6.B COMPLEX VITAMINS - in natural form - to convert carbohydrate to energy and help tone up the nervous system, leaving the performance animal alert not flighty.
7.VITAMIN B1 improves appetite and helps calm the racing animal.
WARNING: COLLOVET contains Caffeine. If used in performance animals, the regulations of the relevant authorites should be observed.
WHEN SHOULD I USE COLLOVET?
Hard conditioning of racing and performance animals usually induces a condition of mental as well as physical stress. Collovet is designed to assist in overcoming or minimising this stress. It should be used when any of the following occur:
PERFORMANCE STRESS caused by hard training and racing. Typical symptoms include - "off feed" or "training off" syndrome, depression,listlessness and general unwillingness.
HANDLING STRESS such as transport, extremes of weather, heat and humidity, handling, confinement, not enough rest and accidents.
SICKNESS STRESS. Collovet can be used as supportive therapy, to improve appetite and assist recovery and promote bloom. During periods of post-operative and general convalescence Collovet will hasten recovery and ensure more normal functioning.
AS A DIETARY ADJUNCT to promote appetite, to improve growth rates and offset losses in production due to unthriftiness, lack of vigour and debility.
AS A MILD STIMULANT Especially helpful for young animals which are weak and undersized at birth and prove difficult to rear.
AS A RESTORATIVE used as supportive tonic therapy in association with more specific therapy used for the treatment of troublesome and non specific persistent conditions.
NOTE COLLOVET IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR APPROPRIATE VETERINARY THERAPY.
COLLOVET is an extremely palatable tonic and is readily accepted by all animals.
HOW DO I ADMINISTER COLLOVET?
Collovet is a water soluble liquid which can be dosed in the drinking water, milk, feed or drenched. Collovet is highly palatable and well accepted by animals of all ages. Used as directed, it does not cause digestive upsets, nausea or vomiting. Collovet should be administered each day for at least 5-10days, depending on the level of response required. During heavy training, give Collovet to prevent the racing animal going off feed. After racing, give Collovet to aid speed of recovery.
Depends on the live weight of the animal. Recommended Dosage:
30 ml per 100kg liveweight or 15ml per 50kg liveweight. Give half the dose in the morning and half in the evening. Continue for a minimum of 5-10 days depending on the response required.
WARNING IF USING ON ANIMALS DUE TO RACE CHECK WITH YOUR RELEVANT RACING AUTHORITIES TO DETERMINE WITHDRAWAL TIMES.
WHEN DO I NEED TO WITHDRAW COLLOVET?
WARNING: because COLLOVET contains caffeine it is subject to racing rules in many jurisdictions. Users are warned to abide by their respective Racing Authority's rulings and to check the warning on the label.
