How Carbadox uses for?

Carbadox is a mid-generation variety of quinkoxen growth promoters. Carbadox has a broad antibacterial spectrum and is particularly sensitive to Gram-resistant bacteria (such as Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Shigella and Proteus); it is the smallest against Gram-positive bacteria (such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus) the inhibitory concentration is also better than that of chlortetracycline, so Kabad can effectively control swine dysentery and bacterial diarrhea. Kabad has a protein assimilation effect, which has a significant effect on promoting the growth of pigs and improving the feed conversion rate.

What's Carbadox side effect?

Carbadox poisoning

Carbadox is often used as a growth-promoting agent (dose du is 11-27.5 mg/kg body weight) and a drug for controlling swine dysentery and enteritis (dose is 55 mg/kg body weight). When the concentration of carbadox in the feed reaches 100 mg/kg, it will cause a decrease in pig feed intake and growth retardation; if the concentration is higher, it can lead to antifeeding and vomiting. When the diet contains 337-363 mg/kg of carbadox, the weaned piglet will refuse to eat and show a decrease in weight gain, paralysis of the hindquarters and excretion of hard ball-shaped feces, and often die within 7-9 days.
