I agree with Yusuf, I don't think there is a medication developed so far for Ascites treatment. Our previous study suggested that managing the concentration of oxygen in the brooding, rearing as well as laying houses through proper management practices such as adequate ventilation, litter management, temperature control, feeding of balanced diets, etc. will significantly reduce the incidence.

Several factors are involved in triggering Ascites in poultry such as fast growth rate (genetics) of broilers, cold stress, high ammonia level, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, etc. In fact, the main cause is low concentration of oxygen in the house not satisfying the oxygen demand by the chicken.

IntroductionHost defense peptides (HDPs), also known as antimicrobial peptides, are present in virtually all species of life and constitute a critical component of the innate immunity [1,2,3,4,5]. Defensins and cathelicidins represent two major families of HDPs in vertebrates [6,7,8,9,10,11]. While defensins are categorized by the presence of six conserved cysteine residues in the C-terminal matur ...

During winter, ambient temperature inside poultry houses could get lower with a potential consequence of a decrease in body temperature of birds unless the temperature inside the house is controlled . Even in environmentally controlled houses, temperature inside the house could get lower by 5-10 F due to incoming air for ventilation purpose. Such condition will trigger an increased oxygen demand b ...
