Natural vitamin A (carotenes) and tocopherol can be destroyed in feedstuffs through processing, ensiling, and storage. Due to these losses, reduced intake of fat-soluble vitamins can occur in animals maintained in continual confinement compared with animals allowed to graze lush pasture. Intramuscular injections offer an efficient and rapid method to increase vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin D.

Some deficiency symptoms may not be corrected by using vitamin E because they do not respond to vitamin E alone but to a combination of vitamin E and selenium. Since marginal deficiencies in vitamin E are difficult to diagnose, a veterinarian should be consulted before administration for treatment purposes.

VIT-E-AD Cautions

Do not exceed recommended dosage. Occasionally, reactions of an anaphylactic or allergic nature may occur. Should such reactions occur, treat immediately with an injection of epinephrine or antihistamines.

Administration of the product to well-nourished animal may cause hypervitaminosis D which may result in hypercalcemia.

If deficiency symptoms persist after the treatment, consult your veterinarian for a reassessment of diagnosis and/or treatment. This product should be used in conjunction with a ration balanced for the animal’s nutritional needs.

Storage

Store between 2° and 30°C. Protect from light.
