Sections 1 & 2 must always be fed together keeping feeding utensils clean. Depending on size of animal the number of feeding portions per pouch will vary (see below).

Ready-to-mix electrolyte and energy supplement formulated for the use in calves, pigs, dogs, cats, lambs, and foals.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS IN CALVES AND PIGS:

Reconstitution / Dilution Directions:

Sections 1 & 2 must be mixed together. Add the entire packet contents of both Sections 1 & 2 with 2 quarts (approximately 2 L) of warm water. Stir mixture until dissolved.

Keep all feeding utensils clean. The reconstituted solution may be offered in a bucket, or via a feeding bottle or syringe in younger animals.

Do not mix DuraLyte Advanced into milk or milk replacer.

Dispose of any unused solution after 24 hours. Always store the dry components in a sealed container in a dry and cool environment. Avoid overfeeding.

Fresh drinking water should be available at all times. Consult your veterinarian if the animal is sick.

CALVES

As an electrolyte and energy supplement for brought in calves

Feed 2 quarts of the reconstituted DuraLyte Advanced upon arrival and as directed instead of milk or milk replacer. The next scheduled feeding should include 1 quart of the DuraLyte Advanced in conjunction with the milk or milk replacer feeding, but do not mix the DuraLyte Advanced directly with the milk or milk replacer, provide these two solutions to the animal separately. All subsequent feedings should return to their normal diet.

Ongoing oral electrolyte and energy supplementation to calves, if required

Feed 1 to 1.5 quarts / 22 lb (approximately 1.5 L / 10kg) of body weight daily divided into two or more daily feedings. As the animal grows supplementation may be increased to 2 quarts per feeding fed at that rate in the morning and again in the evening.

To maintain adequate energy levels and nutrient intake, milk or milk replacer feeding should continue as normal.

DuraLyte Advanced solution should be given between these milk or milk replacer feedings. Replace unused solution with fresh DuraLyte Advanced solution every 24 hours.

PIGS

Use as an electrolyte and energy supplement for:

Suckling Piglets:

Weaned Pigs:

Weaned pigs should have fresh solution mixed as directed and made available in a suitable and clean vessel. As a consumption guide, a fully weaned pig will consume 1 to 2 quarts (approximately 1 to 2 L) per day.
