In one minute: Heat stress and eggshell quality | PlusVet Animal Health
High environmental temperatures cause very serious economic losses to the egg industry each year. There are 3 major factors contributing to these losses: Biochemical, hormonal and metabolic changes due to high temperatures, in example increased production of free radicals that leads to reproductive disturbances (worse laying rate) and failure of the gut barrier. Poor egg quality Impaired skeletal health.

In one minute: Heat stress and eggshell quality

Summary of the article we published here.

Our comprehensive solution to maintain shell quality during heat stress 

1. PhytoMax©

PhytoMax© is a combination of vitamins, chelated calcium, microminerals and essential oils to be given through drinking water. It is intended for layers and breeders to:

  • Maintain the levels of calcium and magnesium needed for optimal egg production.
  • Reinforce skeletal health.
  • Prevent cage fatigue.
  • Stimulate the hepatic metabolism and the immune system.
  • Improve the quality of the egg and the health of day-old chicks.
  • Avoid the drop of the laying rate produced by stress (management, vaccines, hot weather, etc…)
  • At the start of the laying period, to boost productivity.
  • Prolong the productive life of the hen.


2. PlusBreathe©

PlusBreathe© contains essential oils with natural antiseptic, antioxidant, expectorant and mucolytic activity. It has a refreshing taste.

It is indicated to improve the functioning of the respiratory system and to mitigate heat stress in birds, ruminants, pigs and rabbits of all ages. It can also be nebulized in the farm environment.

3. SupraPlus©

SupraPlus© is intended to maintain and improve digestive health and to improve hydration in poultry, ruminants and swine of all ages. It is given through drinking water and is formulated with synergistic ingredients:

  • Bactericidal and fungicidal plant extracts, combined with organic acids for better effectiveness, that reduce the number of pathogenic microbes in the digestive system.
  • Plant extracts with prebiotic effect, that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system.
  • Electrolytes to maintain hydration
  • Sugars that are quickly absorbed and can be easily used as a energy source
  • Vitamin E

It is especially useful during the first week of life, to promote a healthy development of the digestive system and improve hydration; in case of digestive diseases, to improve gut health and restore the levels of electrolytes; in episodes of heat stress, to prevent digestive problems, restore the levels of electrolytes and fight with the body oxidation caused by free radicals.
