Our Copper difference
Capsules are inserted orally using a specially designed Animax applicator.
The copper oxide rods are released and lodge in the folds of the stomach lining.
The copper oxide needles are released in the rumen within 30 minutes of administration.
The needles pass slowly through the ruminant stomachs for a period of 2 to 3 months and the liver reserves are topped up.
Stores of copper build up in the liver, as the copper is absorbed in the abomasum (fourth stomach) at a steady rate.
The copper reserves that have built up in the liver are released gradually for approximately 6 months.
