gut health | PlusVet Animal Health
Gut health is a main concern in the poultry and livestock industries as it is crucial for the performance, general health and welfare of production animals. A proper functioning of the digestive tract is essential to ensure that the production of meat, eggs and milk is up to the genetic standard of the animals; to optimize FCR; to prevent digestive diseases including leaky gut; to maintain egg quality; and to avoid the spread of pathogenic microorganisms present in feces to other animals in the same batch or the following batches.

Gut health, why is it important for your animals?

Gut health is a main concern in the poultry and livestock industries as it is crucial for the performance, general health and welfare of production animals.

 

Proper functioning of the digestive tract is essential to ensure that the production of meat, eggs and milk is up to the genetic standard of the animals; to optimize FCR; to prevent digestive diseases including leaky gut; to maintain egg quality; and to avoid the spread of pathogenic microorganisms present in feces to other animals in the same batch or the following batches.

On the other hand, gut health is related to the general health and welfare of the animals, to air quality and to certain diseases that happen outside the digestive system, such as colibacillosis, bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (poultry), postpartum dysgalactia syndrome (sows), fatty liver and ketosis (ruminants).

 

For all the above, maintaining and strengthening gut health is key for the success of poultry and livestock operations. 

What is exactly gut health?

The concept of gut health
It covers many positive aspects of the gastrointestinal tract: effective digestion and absorption of nutrients, healthy tissues, a stable and highly diverse microbiota, a strong immune system and a state of well-being.
Importance of gut health
The health of the digestive tract is vital to animal performance. A healthy gastrointestinal tract can reduce or avoid the use of growth-promoting antibiotics. A healthy gut also means that there are no diseases, and animals can perform their physiological functions and combat exogenous and endogenous stress.

Three aspects of a healthy digestive system

Gut health covers three main aspects of the digestive system: the macro and microstructural integrity and physiology of tissues; the balance of the digestive flora; the state of the local immune system.

Tejidos sanos

Healthy tissues

  • Absence of lesions, irritation or inflammation
  • Adequate amount of mucin
  • Villi with a high villi height / crypt depth coefficient
  • Robust intestinal barrier
Microbiota equilibrada

Balanced microbiota

  • High degree of microbial diversity
  • High number of beneficial microorganisms
  • Reduced number of pathogenic microorganisms
Sistema inmune robusto

Robust immune system

  • Generation of an adequate immune response against invading pathogens
  • Robust intestinal barrier function
  • Reduction of excessive inflammatory responses

It is necessary to take care of these three aspects to optimize digestive health

Since the mid-twentieth century, growth-promoting antibiotics (AGP) have been fed at subtherapeutic doses and for much of the life of animals to maintain digestive health. Since 2006, when the EU banned their use, the industry is moving globally towards their reduction or elimination.

 

From the European experience, we have learned that no additive alone is a complete substitute for AGPs. Management practices, environmental conditions, biosecurity, chick quality, water quality, health and feeding programs – all of these factors play an important role in gut health and need to be paid more attention.

 

At the same time, the use of innovative ingredient combinations that address all three aspects of digestive health is key to achieving highly profitable production without the use of antibiotic growth promoters.

  • An improvement of health and welfare parameters, such as footpad dermatitis in poultry or mastitis metritis agalactia in sows
  • A decrease of the ammonia production
  • A reduction of pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract that prevents the onset of digestive diseases
  • A cutback of the antibiotics needed for treatment of certain diseases
  • An increase of the economic benefits
