FPD can be prevented by good management of the litter material. Parameters of the litter such as moisture content and texture must be well monitored. Frequent turning of the litter and replacement with new ones can help a lot. Thank you.

Really topical subject. Pododermatitis is multifactorial
To reduce the risk of developing pododermatitis, it is necessary to play on several levers
- Density per m2
- Mastering the ventilation parameters
- Litter moisture management
- The diet also plays indirectly on the appearance of pododermatitis.
Finally, pododermatitis management will first start to choose the right material of the litter. Peat, wood chips, and to a lesser extent straw.

How can you play on food leverage to prevent pododermatitis? Do you want to expand your response amply?
My sincere thanks.

Some diets of the consistency of droppings they will generate can promote the appearance of pododermatitis;
- An excess of sodium or potassium for example!!!
- A wheat-based diet in which the use of enzymes is not optimal can lead to intestinal disorders and diarrhea!
At your disposal.

Hello Mr. Muhammad Zeeshan.
In our country, we use exclusively straw or different types of bedding and we use a forklift for delivery of the chicks. Can you tell me how you deliver the chicks with that plastic slat flooring? Can you enter with delivery equipment on it?

The stagnant litter with stinky smell full of harmful bacteria is the one of the causes of disease both to bird and end user. It is nothing but a dry toilet. Regular removal and keeping hygienic
condition is important. Poultry owners particularly in backward countries awareness of harmful bacteria, fungi etc to be analysed and information to be passed to control. Feed containing
solvent free, avoiding processed food with minimum use of antibiotics and drugs are to be followed. Natural immune system with clean water free from chlorine, fluoride and chloro-amine to be adopted.

Sorry, there is some exaggeration in your comments.
Litters are not stagnant (in Europe you do not raise poultry on accumulated bedding.)

I think intestinal damage such as enteritis also enhances the pododermatitis. Thanks.
