Cupri-Max copper capsules 2.1g & 4.2g are large, green, hard gelatin (vegetable) capsules containing copper oxide 2.1 & 4.2g, equivalent to 1.785g and 3.75g copper respectively.
In sheep & Lambs Cupri-Max copper capsules are a nutritional support for:
- Copper deficiency
- The prevention of swayback in lambs by the feeding of ewes with Cupri-Max prior to lambing
- The prevention of delayed swayback by feeding to lambs before signs appear
- The reduction of lamb mortality in conditions of copper deficiency
- Improved energy utilisation & growth rates
How Cupri Max capsules work
A proportion of the administered copper oxide lodges in the abomasum of the animal. This provides a sustained- release source of copper for absorption from the gut. This steady supplementation ensures adequate copper status but avoids the sharp rises in copper levels, which can be associated with copper toxicity.
Following administration of Cupri-Max to sheep, other forms of copper supplementation are unnecessary and must not be given unless under veterinary advice.
