With one of the world's leading rabbit veterinarians on the technical team, Optivite have an enviable position in matters concerning the nutrition and health of commercial rabbits.
The impact of health status on the success of any rabbit enterprise cannot be underestimated. Being highly sensitive to coliform infections, diarrhoea is a common problem. This leads to poor performance, dehydration and ultimately death. Mortality is the major issue in rabbit production and levels of 50-70% are not unusual. To combat this problem our technicians have developed specific antibacterial products based on natural non-pharmaceutical ingredients. Genex Lap provides a powerful and effective antimicrobial tool to help raise the health status.
Optivite produce Vitamin Mineral Premixes to the exact requirements of the breeding and growing rabbits. Manufactured in dedicated drug-free conditions according to the highest quality standards, we provide the optimal vitamin, mineral and trace element supplementation for commercially raised rabbits.
Modern diets are often deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and contain a high proportion of omega-6s resulting in a sub-optimal ratio of these important dietary constituents. The main reason for this is an increasing reliance on vegetable fats for energy. The addition of the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are known to have positive benefits. Our own extensive trial work using Optomega omega-3 fatty acid supplement in pet foods has clearly shown the benefit of including Optomega in the diet.
