Our Copper difference

Capsules and boluses* are inserted orally using a specially designed Animax applicator.

The copper oxide rods are released and lodge in the folds of the stomach lining.

Product is available either as a capsule or bolus in different countries.

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.
