HabiShield Shielding Powder
The first few hours of life are critical in the lifetime performance of an animal, especially as it is exposed to an array of disease-causing pathogens and environmental stresses.
Introducing HabiShield - An Antimicrobial/Super Absorbent protection system that offers immediate protection in two critical areas:
- Protecting a newborn against disease causing pathogens
- Immediately drying the newborn animal
How does HabiShield work?
- Dry off the newborn with the HabiShield drying powder
- Use a clean, dry towel and "fluff dry" the newborn to protect it against disease-causing pathogens.
- HabiShield is also extremely effective as a navel protectant
- Drying helps a newborn to better regulate its body temperature. Otherwise, heat is removed from the animal as the water evaporates.
- This leaves the newborn highly susceptible to chilling, and wastes the newborn's energy.
- Young animals have little subcutaneous fat, which leaves them with minimal insulation.
- Newborns with poor respiration also struggle more to regulate their temperature.
