This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Lloyd

Electrolyte replacement and nutritional supplement for young animals

Indications: For use as an electrolyte replacement and nutritional supplement in young calves, lambs and foals.

Preparation: Hydra-Lyte readily dissolves in water and is easily absorbed. Prepare solution by dissolving the contents of both compartments of this package in two quarts of warm water. Prepare the solution just prior to use and administer with an esophageal probe, nursing bottle or pail.

Feeding Directions: 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 day administer one quart Hydra-Lyte solution mixed with one quart of either milk or milk replacer to each calf or foal two times each day. Lambs 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 day.

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. Use the same dosage regimen for the third and fourth days as recommended above.

Ingredients: Dextrose, sodium acetate, potassium chloride, glycine, sodium citrate, sodium chloride.
