Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the air sacs of birds
Airsacculitis is not a disease itself, but rather a symptom of a disease caused by bacteria such as E. coli, Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG), Mycoplasma synoviae (MS)or Mycoplasma meleagridis (MM). It typically peaks in the late winter and early fall, in keeping with cold/heat-stress and poor ventilation.
To treat airsacculitis, it’s best to get an accurate diagnosis of its cause and follow that recommended treatment.
To protect against airsacculitis, Zoetis Poultry Health offers L-S 50 Water Soluble® Powder. However, this product only helps control airsacculitis; be sure to treat the causal diseases with a recommended product.
