Improve productivity with our animal health range including anthelmintics (parasiticides), minerals and vitamins, ectoparasiticides (lice & fly), bloat remedy, teat sprays, flavour agent and applicator guns.

Good parasite control is necessary to maintain animal health and productivity. Ravensdown has a range of Anthelmintics to meet all your parasite control requirements.

Lice are a common problem in cattle and cause irritation and lost production.  Flystrike affects 1-2 million sheep and kills an estimated 250,000 lambs annually.  Treat lice and prevent flystrike with Ravensdown lice control and flystrike prevention products.

Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common problem in lambs and causes reduced appetite and growth rates.

Magnesium deficiency (hypomagnesaemia) is particularly common in dairy cows during late pregnancy.  Prevention using Ravensdown magnesium supplements is very effective and cost-effective in preventing disease and lost production.

Trace element deficiencies are very common in New Zealand, especially copper, cobalt, selenium, iodine and zinc.  Deficiencies cause a variety of conditions which result in reduced productivity, disease and death.

Favouring agents mask the flavour of additives in water, drench and feed, making all three more palatable to encourage consumption.

Additional supplements are available through Ravensdown to give your stock that extra boost.

Mastitis is one of the most significant animal health issues, costing the dairy industry millions each year.  Teat spraying all cows reduces new infections by 50-60% and helps prevent the spread of the contagious bacteria that cause mastitis.

Prevention is the key to facial eczema, because treatment is expensive and often unsuccessful.

Detergent based bloat remedies are a valuable tool to control bloat.

Ravensdown stock a range of applicator guns for oral drenching, injecting and pour on applications.
