Lectade Liquid Concentrate 250ml
Lectade Liquid Concentrate is an oral rehydration therapy containing a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes for treatment of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. Use it as a supportive treatment for scouring or dehydrated dogs, cats, calves, pigs, lambs and foals.
Lectade Liquid Concentrate is a non-antibiotic oral supportive treatment. Glucose and glycine are actively absorbed by the intestinal tract causing water and sodium to be absorbed simultaneously with these nutrients, ensuring a high degree of rehydration in scouring and dehydrated dogs and cats, calves, pigs, lambs and foals.

- To replace lost fluids and electrolytes in scouring or dehydrated calves, pigs, lambs and foals
- A suitable first feed for bought-in or stressed calves and pigs.
