The use of water with adequate physical, chemical and microbiological quality is of fundamental importance for the sound performance of a herd/flock. Water being the most important nutrient for life, the quality preservation of water is the primary element for a healthy herd. Contamination of water supplies is increasing gradually as a result of rural and urban activities

Use of water with no microbiological control poses the risk that animals are affected at any time by water-borne diseases that generally have disastrous consequences especially in animal sector where many animals have access to the same source of water.

Drinking water is an important mode of transmission of bacterial, viral and protozoan diseases that commonly affect animal health. Important factors to prevent water-borne infections are the

Protection of supply sources of water
Water sanitation and
Quality control of microbiological, chemical and physical characteristics.

Two areas that need to be checked are
1. Keeping the disease out of the flock
2. If introduced, prevent its spread within the premises or to other uninfected herds.

Provision of clean drinking water, with a control on the microbiological quality is very important to maintain a healthy herd and this is achieved with the use of TetraSan, a quaternary ammonium preparation, ideally suited for the rapid sanitization of drinking water.

Prevents water-borne infections of bacterial and fungal origin.
Reduces chances of water-borne viral infections.

Fast acting bactericide, fungicide and virustat
Residual bacteriostat and fungistat
Safe, Odorless disinfectant
Non-staining at user dilutions
Effective in all types of water

Didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride

Mode of Action
Didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride, a Quaternary ammonium compound is an excellent surfactant (surface active agent) which adsorbs the microbial cell surface and diffuses into the cell, finally binding the cell membrane and disrupting it leading to the leakage of the intracellular contents which kills the cell.

Spectrum of activity
Fights many of the pathogenic bacteria, virus and fungi commonly present in the water sources.

Safe and effective water sanitizer
to check the microbial contamination in drinking waters.
to provide clean water for maintaining a healthy herd.

1 ml of TetraSan in 10 liters or 500 ml in 5,000 liters of drinking water, daily.
