Description of OBITRIOL 10
Bolus composed of Solanum glaucophyllum which disintegrates in 10 days.
Solanum glaucophyllum is a plant very rich in glycosides of vitamin D3. This form makes it possible to express its action on vitamin D3 as soon as it is ingested, unlike other forms of vitamin D3 which require a first hepatic hydroxylation and a second renal hydroxylation after ingestion.
Obitriol 10 is to be given to adult cows 72 hours to 24 hours before calving. It is recommended to give a second bolus if the cow has not calved 5 days after the first bolus is applied.
