Shamrock Farm Enterprises understand the necessity to supplement the camel’s diet with minerals, trace elements and vitamins to offset any deficiencies that can occur.
Features and Benefits:
Selenium supplementation is of particular importance to prevent the development of white muscle disease and cases of degenerative cardiomyopathy.
Zinc deficiency in camels lends itself to parakeratosis, alopecia, weight loss, abnormal foot/hoof formation and ocular discharge.
Similar to other living animals, macro-minerals are used either structurally (calcium, phosphorus, sulfur) or in the maintenance of acid-base balance (sodium, potassium, chloride) as well as functioning in energy, nerve impulses and enzymatic reactions (phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, sodium, chloride).
The trace elements, copper, zinc, molybdenum, manganese and selenium mainly contribute to the structure and function of biochemical reactions, while in its own right iron is an integral component of haemoglobin and iodine for the synthesis of thyroid hormones and metabolism.
