Electrolyte replacement and nutritional supplement for young animals

CONTAINS:

Dextrose - Raises blood glucose levels to correct hypoglycemia and stimulates electrolyte and water assimilation
Glycine - Promotes intestinal absorption of water and sodium and helps spare protein utilization for energy purposes
Sodium acetate - Provides an immediate energy source and correct acidosis without inhibiting milk clotting
Potassium chloride - Restores normal intracellular potassium levels to correct hypokalemia
Sodium chloride - Restores lost sodium levels and is a major factor in the absorption of water to effectively correct dehydration
Sodium citrate - Enhances the absorption of Electrolytes and water
Energy - contains glucose to correct hypoglycemia

Supplies sodium acetate to correct acidosis

No added bicarbonate so it can be used with milk or milk replacer

Provides optimum electrolyte and water absorption

Restores normal body fluid and electrolyte balance

Designed to keep abomasal pH low to help prevent growth of pathogenic bacteria

Dosage and Administration

Administer two quarts of Hydra-Lyte solution to each calf or foal twice daily for the first two days. Feed the Hydra-Lyte solution as extra meals while still feeding milk or milk replacer. If the animal refuses milk, feed the Hydra-Lyte solution and resume feeding the milk or milk replacer at the next scheduled feeding. On the third and fourth days administer one quarter Hydra-Lyte solution mixed with one quart of either milk or milk replaced to each calf or foal two times each day. Lambs and kids will require about one fourth of the above dosage. Most treated animals can be returned to normal feeding on the fifth day, but treatment can be continued on the fifth through seventh days.

Note: In cases when extra supplementation is needed or in large neonatal animals, two quarts of Hydra-Lyte solution should be administered to each calf or foal four times each day for the first two days. One fourth this dosage is required for lambs and kids. Use the same dosage regimen for the third and fourth days as recommended above.
