Scientifically formulated in conjunction with leading NZ veterinary scientists, to provide energy and a combination of essential salts to assist with calf and lamb rehydration.

  • Balanced solution that contains optimal sodium levels to restore fluid and electrolyte losses.
  • Contains alkalinising agents like acetate and propionate to help with the sodium absorption in the intestines and to correct acidosis in scouring calves, without exerting negative effects on milk clotting and emptying of the abomasum.
  • Has a high Strong Ion Difference (SID) which also helps the calf to recover from blood acidosis due to scours.
  • Supplies energy in the form of dextrose and lactose to aid rehydration and to provide an energy source to the calf.
