Colchicum is a homeopathic remedy that is big for it effect on the digestive system, especially around problems of trapped gas. It will assist the immune system of a dairy cow that is suffering from bloat symptoms.
Can be used prior to going into a paddock that will have the risk of giving dairy cows bloat, and also for the ill effects once a cows is showing signs of bloat.

Handmade in NZ. All remedies have a shelf life of 5 years.
All 500ml bottles come with a free 100ml spray bottle to dispense remedy into and for ease of use.
We use pharmaceutical grade plastic bottles, so they won't break and tamper proof lids so they won't come off in the bike carrier box or when out and about on the farm.
All Agripathics remedies come in liquid form, as we find this is the easiest way to administer.
You can treat farm animals individually or at the herd level.
Homeopathic remedies are best administered on to a mucus membrane, for dairy cows this means either the nose or vulva. When the cows are in the dairy shed the easiest way to administer is to spray on to the vulva.
I like to administer at least 3 times per milking - when the cow comes into the shed, when I put the cups on and again when I take the cups off. I usually do 3-4 sprays as a single dose. This allows her to have at least 5 minutes between doses and works really well at getting the amount needed into the cow to get an effective response.
For other farm animals the remedy is best administered into mouth, food or water.
This is best done by putting into their water trough, so putting 1-2 capfuls in their drinking water means each time they drink, they are getting dose.
How long will a bottle last:
Individual treatment: there are 1875 single doses in a 500ml bottle

Caution: If this preparation fails to alleviate the condition being treated the user should seek veterinary advice.
