Diarrhoea, or scouring, in young animals leaves them weak and dehydrated. Vital minerals and electrolytes are dissolved in the fluid they use and it’s vital to rehydrate the animals and replace those minerals and electrolytes. Sacrolyte offers a simple solution. It’s an electrolyte powder that you mix with water and feed to your animals twice a day for up to three days. It comes in single dose sachets so you can feed it to the isolated animals to make sure they’re restored to health as soon as possible.
Sacrolyte is a complete dietetic feeding stuff for the particular nutritional purpose of the stabilization of water and electrolyte balance in young calves and pigs. It contains predominantly electrolytes and easily absorbable carbohydrate. It may be used in case of, during periods of, or recovery from digestive disturbance (diarrhoea).
Dosage and Administration:
Sacrolyte is for oral use in calves and pigs. Add the contents of one 100g sachet to 2.5 litres (½ gallon) of water and mix thoroughly while adding. This amount should be fed twice daily. Occasionally it may be necessary to force feed an animal. On day 3 day return animal to ½ normal feed and ½ Sacrolyte solution. Thereafter, return animal to normal diet.
