- Foxcid is an important product which completely eliminates Clostridium spiroforme and all its symptoms in rabbits which leads to alleviation of its negative symptoms on productive performance of rabbits.
- Foxcid prevents enterotoxaemia that is a severe diarrheal disease, primarily of rabbits 4–8 weeks old when naturally infected; it also can affect rabbits at all life stages if an inappropriate antibiotic is given orally. Signs are lethargy, rough coat, greenish-brown fecal material covering the perineal area, and death within 48 hours.
- Foxcid penetrates the cell wall of Clostridium spiroforme and lowers the cytoplasmic pH leading to degradation of the cell wall due to pH gradient.
- Foxcid helps to restore balanced gut flora after being damaged by Clostridium spiroforme, as it is supported by nutrients which support the growth of beneficial gut flora in rabbit flocks.
- Foxcid degrades toxins of Clostridium spiroforme by decreasing pH, as the optimum pH level for toxins of Clostridium spiroforme is the neutral pH and they appear to be unstable in a pH less than 6.1 which leads to their degradation.
