Avaplan contains Lasalocid, a divalent polyether ionophore antibiotic, produced by Streptomyces lasaliensis, and recommended as a medicinal feed additive for continuous use to control coccidiosis in poultry species. It is a broad spectrum anticoccidial agent approved to protect against Eimeria species in broilers and replacement pullets, turkeys, pheasants and quails. Themechanism of action of lasalocid and other ionophores has been extensively investigated and reported. Like other carboxylic polyether ionophores, lasalocid disturbs ionic homeostasis, leading to osmotic lysis of coccidia.

Recommendations for use

Lasalocid is approved for continuous use in broilers, replacement pullets, turkeys, guinea fowl, pheasants, partridges, quail, rabbits, cattle and sheep at concentrations of 75 to 125 mg/kg of lasalocid sodium in feed as a pre-mix containing 1,5% lasalocid sodium. Lasalocid is not approved for use in laying birds.
