Electrolytes are an essential supplement in treating animals following periods of digestive upsets. We have products to help rehydrate and and maintain health in young livestock.
Causes of digestive upsets can be either nutritional or infectious. When a young animal is exposed to more than one infection at a time, bowel disorders can cause the lining of the gut to become permanently damaged which will lead to growth and development problems later in life.
Treatment of calf bowel disorder is by isolation and feeding an appropriate electrolyte source to provide the calf with energy to boost the immune system and help overcome any infection.
Electrolytes should contain essential salts to help overcome dehydration and buffers to overcome acidosis in the gut. Sugars in the form of dextrose will provide energy and help to promote the uptake of water.
