    Trivia questions : What is olaquindox?


    Olaquindox solubility

    Olaquindox is easily soluble in water when heated, but crystals can be precipitated after a certain period of time when the water temperature is lowered, so it is not suitable to be mixed and administered by heating.

    Olaquindox pharmacological action

    The antibacterial growth promoting agent has the function of promoting protein assimilation, improving feed conversion rate, and accelerating pig weight gain. It has inhibitory effect on Gram-negative bacteria; it has certain inhibitory effect on Gram-positive bacteria; it is still effective against drug-resistant strains such as tetracycline and chloramphenicol.

    Olaquindox synthesis

    The chemical synthesis method of quinol is based on o-nitroaniline, and it is first reacted with sodium hypochlorite to form phenoxydiammon. N-oxide is reacted with diketene and ethanolamine to obtain quinethanol. The crude product can be refined by recrystallization.

    Is olaquindox an antibiotic?

    Olaquindox is a chemically synthesized growth promoter rather than an antibiotic, which can promote the body's protein metabolism and improve the energy utilization rate of the feed. Therefore, it accelerates the growth and development and increases the lean meat rate of the individual. At the same time, quinol has obvious antibacterial effect on both Gram-positive bacteria and Gram-negative bacteria, and does not affect the beneficial intestinal microbial colonies. Therefore, it has a significant effect on the prevention and control of swine diarrhea. 50 ~ 150 mg / kg. olaquindox has a stinging effect with other drugs such as zinc bacitracin, aspartic acid, and fast fat. Therefore, the above drugs cannot be used in pig full-price feeds at the same time.

    Olaquindox uses

    Olaquindox is a broad-spectrum antibacterial drug, which also has the effect of promoting growth. The antibacterial spectrum is similar to methaquine, and it has a strong effect on Gram-negative bacteria such as Pasteurella, Salmonella poultry, Escherichia coli, Proteus, and Monosporum. It is particularly sensitive to pathogenic hemolytic E. coli High; it also has a certain inhibitory effect on Gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus, etc. and D. hyodysenteriae. This product can promote protein assimilation, increase lean meat rate, promote growth of livestock and poultry, and improve feed conversion rate.

    Olaquindox ban

    This product has been widely used to promote the growth of livestock and poultry, and also used to prevent and cure avian cholera, chicken colibacillosis, staphylococcal disease, piglet yellow and white sturgeon, porcine gastroenteritis, freshwater fish bacterial hemorrhagic sepsis, scabies and so on. Due to the long withdrawal period (35 days) in livestock and poultry, the 2000 edition of the "Chinese Veterinary Pharmacopoeia" stipulated that it should only be used for pigs under 35 kg to promote growth and banned from poultry.

    Olaquindox in poultry feed

    Olaquindox has a cumulative toxicity of medium or higher, which means that it has a certain residue in the animal's body and its elimination is slow. When the accumulation in the animal reaches a certain level, it will induce teratogenicity of the cell chromosome, and the animal will bleed and die when it is stimulated.
    Because of the moderate to obvious accumulation toxicity of olaquindox, it has obvious teratogenic effects on most animals, and also has potential tertiary effects on humans, namely teratogenicity, mutation, carcinogenesis. Therefore, olaquindox is banned as a feed additive in the United States and the European Union. In the breeding and production process, the use of olaquindox has a long withdrawal period, and the residual poison accumulated in the animal should be eliminated before use.

    Olaquindox side effects

    Olaquindox poisoning

    It is a new drug widely used in poultry to promote growth and antibacterial, but it is extremely sensitive to poultry, especially young birds, and it is easy to cause poisoning death. In recent years, cases of avian quinol alcohol poisoning have been common, and therefore have attracted great attention. Common drug overdose, long medication time and uneven stirring can cause poisoning.

    Olaquindox poisoning symptoms

    Vulnerable to cold, thirst, loss of appetite, crouching, or walking. Juveniles chill, get together, and gather near heat sources. Cockscombs and meat clams are dark red or dark purple. The stool is thin and yellowish white. Sagging wings. Some manifestations include nerve excitement, shortness of breath, and chaotic running. It usually dies 1 to 3 days after poisoning, and the course of disease is 7 to 10 days. Before his death, some flapped his wings, screamed, and his horn bow reversed. Chronic disease ducks have upper beak shrinkage deformities.

    Olaquindox poisoning prevention

    (1) If poisoning is found, feed containing Olaquindox is stopped immediately, and the sodium sulphate solution is used for drinking water. In severe cases, it can be taken only one by one; C 1 mg, Vitamin B6 0.2 mg.
    (2) Vitamin K3 tablets are added to the feed, 24 mg per kg of feed, for 1 week, and choline chloride is added to the feed to protect organs such as liver and kidney, and reduce death.
    (3) Strictly control the amount of feed, as a feed additive, used to promote growth, 25 ~ 35 g / ton of feed, should be mixed well.


    Olaquindox is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used in animal feed to promote growth, improve feed utilization, and increase weight. Due to its harm to human health, in 2005, the Chinese government's veterinary drug regulatory agency had banned the use of olaquindox for poultry and aquaculture.
    The Olaquindox Rapid Test kit provided by BALLYA can effectively detect the presence of olaquindox residues in poultry and aquatic products. This kit is not only simple to operate, but also has a short test time and high accuracy. Can ensure consumers food safety.
