Respiratory diseases of young animals cause significant economic damage. One of the factors of their occurrence is ammonia (“volatile alkali”), which is formed from urine and feces in the litter. The purpose of the research was to study the effect of the sanitary and hygienic agent “Biological inactivator of toxic gases” on the formation of ammonia and some indicators of homeostasis in the cold method of calf rearing. In the course of the study, it was found that the use of an inactivator in animal litter allows for a significant increase in the “gas” purity of the air space, reducing the amount of “volatile alkali” in the air inhaled by calves – up to 107.3% by the 60th day of the experiment. At the same time, the respiratory function of the animal body is activated, which is manifested in an increase in the number of red blood cells by 1.5 times and hemoglobin by 1.2 times, hidden acidosis in calves decreases; intensity of the leukocyte reaction decreases by 2.5 times from the initial values, erythrocyte sedimentation rate - by 3.8 times; degree of blood thickening in animals decreases, as evidenced by the positive dynamics of the proteinogram, namely, a decrease in total protein in the blood serum.
