Use of DigestoCid© to eliminate E. Coli from drinking water

Author/s : PlusVet Animal Health

In a previous article, we discussed the importance of contaminated drinking water as a risk factor for colibacillosis and stressed the need to pay attention to its microbiological quality.In a recent trial made in our lab, we showed the in vitro effectiveness of DigestoCid© to eliminate E. coli from drinking water:In the test, drinking water was artificially contaminated w...

PUVVALA RAM PRASAD Control of E. coli in drinking water is only one of the many steps that are necessary for the elimination of E. coli from the rearing flock. Other steps include all-in, all-out systems, hygiene and biosecurity plans, litter management, rodent and insects control, feed contamination control, etc.

You can search a document called "Community guide for good hygiene
practices in pullet rearing and egg laying flocks", made by COPA-COGECA and EUWEP, following European regulations, I think it may be helpful.

Regarding the use of Digestocid, we make a program that depends on the initial microbial contamination of drinking water, each farm has different risks.

Elimination of E.Coli from animal and human premises?
Far Cry. Keep animals and yourself healthy and free from stress. E.Coli stays at its place. But will be there. No acid can ELIMINATE.

Dear Dr. Kotaiah, thanks for your comment!

Acids decrease the pH of the water, creating an environment where it's difficult for E. coli and other potential pathogens to survive. Besides acids, DigestoCid also contains essential oils, which kill E. coli through direct action on the bacterial cell. Therefore, the use of the product effectively eliminates E. coli from drinking water, we have in vitro trials and in farm experiences that prove it.

I remain at your disposal for further information, and I take the opportunity to wish you a fantastic 2022!

Teresa

Water is a fascinating subject. I would like to caution that in not all circumstances will decreasing water PH along with essential oils eliminate pathogens (e-coli, etc..) .

If your sanitation program is failing (due to application, dose, resistance etc..) then the problem of having bacteria present will accelerate with adding any organic substances. One also must be careful that the product doesn't interfere with the chosen sanitizer.

I have seen minerals, vitamins,essential oils etc.. tie up the sanitizer whether it be chlorine based or peroxide based. Always check sanitizer level before and after adding any product.

One neat trick I like is to collect a water sample in a sanitized jar from the end of the drinking line, and let it sit for a while. Look through it against a light, and if it's still clean, your chances of having no bacteria is quiet high.

Acidification of water to reduce pH, and control bacteria is not possible as 24/7 acidity needs to b maintained for this, which is seldom done by farmers, they are habituated to use medication in morning n leave the evening water in medicated or non santised
