Most pathogenic germs are killed at a pH level of 4. The animal exploits this by secreting a substance on its skin and in its airways with a pH of about 4.5. This secretion inhibits bacteria and considerably reduces the risk of infection.
Ammonia accumulated in the animal housing environment has a high pH value which enables it to dissolve the protective secretion, the skin itself and the surfaces of the respiratory tract, thus increasing the risk of infection.
Stalosan F neutralises ammonia and creates a more ”natural” animal housing environment with a lower pH value that supports the animals’ natural resistance.
Stalosan F is neutral to animals and people. This enables Stalosan F to be used for all forms of livestock, regardless of housing conditions.
