- Vitamin A plays an important role in the protection of the epithelial tissues (including retina and skin) and the mucous membranes and therefore as a protection against general infections. Vitamin A deficiency symptoms are hyperkeratosis of the skin, xerophthalmia, blindness, nervous symptoms, decreased growth rates and lower fertility.
- Vitamin D3 takes care of the regular process of the calcium-phosphorous metabolism. It also plays a role in increasing the rate of Ca++- absorption and transport from the intestine and so promoting calcification of bone. Vitamin D3 deficiency symptoms are rickets in young animals and osteomalacia in adults.
- Vitamin E has an anti-oxidant action. This action links vitamin E with vitamin A metabolism (it is used for the stabilising of vitamin A in foodstuffs), and with the unsaturated fatty acids (deficiency symptoms are muscular disorders, e.g. White Muscle Disease, Stiff Lamb Disease).
AD3E is indicated for treatment and prevention of deficiencies of the vitamins A, D3 and/or E, in connection with general bacterial infections, improvement of rearing results, growth disturbances, non-infectious reproductive and sight disturbances, enteritis, convalescence and skin problems. Prophylactic treatment during strong labour and stressful situations.
Overdosage of vitamin D3 may cause hypercalcaemia in young animals.
