Directions Of Use

Dose Guide:

Pigs:

Suckling Piglets

As soon as scours signs appear, fresh diluted solution should be made available, in a clean vessel, to the whole litter.  A litter of 1 week old piglets will consume approximately 2-3 litres per day. The amount consumed will increase with the age of the piglets. Piglets may be dosed individually, by giving 20 to 30 mL diluted solution 3 or 4 times a day, taking care to avoid choking. Take care to ensure that piglets are not left without diluted solution, drinking water, or sow’s milk.Check the supply of solution every 12 hours and replenish if necessary.

Weaned Pigs

Scouring weaned pigs should have fresh diluted solution available in a suitable clean vessel. Restrict solid feed intake for one or two days, but continue to supply fresh drinking water.As a general guide, weaners will consume 1-2 litres/ weaner/ day.

Duration of treatment (all pigs)

Diluted solution should be made available for 4 days, but if the scour has not cleared completely, treatment may be continued for up to 8 days in total. If there is no sign of improvement, consult a veterinary surgeon.

Periods of stress: For the 2 to 3 days following any period of stress (eg weaning, transport), Vytrate will help to increase fluid and electrolyte consumption and absorption, so minimising any possible setback. As diluted solution is extremely palatable and excessive drinking may occur, diluted solution at half the strength recommended above may be used, for this indication only. Replace with fresh solution every 24 hours.


Sheep:

Scouring Lambs

Give 150 to 200mL fresh diluted solution 2 to 4 times daily as required. The solution should be adjusted to body heat and given via a feeding bottle and teat. The lamb should also suck the ewe. Unused diluted solution may be kept in a clean container below 25oC but should be replaced with fresh solution every 24 hours.

Pregnancy Toxaemia in Ewes

Administer 160mL undiluted solution using suitable drenching equipment. Repeat at 4 to 6 hour intervals as necessary. Prompt treatment as soon as signs appear improves the likelihood of a complete recovery.


Calves:

Bought-in or Stressed Calves (not scouring)

Feed 2 litres of solution, made up as directed, instead of milk as the first feed on arrival.For the next scheduled feed, use 1 litre solution at the same time as, but not mixed with, milk or milk replacer. Thereafter, feed normal diet.

Scouring Calves

Feed 1 to 1.5 litres of solution per 10kg bodyweight daily, divided into two or more daily doses.If scouring is established or severe, causing dehydration, the higher dose should be used initially and fed in three or four divided doses. 2 litres of diluted solution given morning and night will be adequate in many cases. Replace with fresh solution every 24 hours. To maintain adequate energy and nutrient intake, milk feeding should continue as normal during period of scouring. Diluted solution should be given between these milk feeds. Fresh drinking water should be available at all times. Keep feeding utensils clean and avoid overfeeding.Normal feeding should be resumes after the course of treatment. Many scouring problems can be avoided by feeding adequate colostrum early in the calf’s life. Seek veterinary advice if blood is present or if scours persist beyond four days.


Horses:

Foals

Administer diluted solution, made up as directed, orally to scouring or dehydrated foals by drenching using a bottle or stomach tube. As a guide, 1 to 2 litres of fresh diluted solution 2 to 3 times daily, depending on bodyweight and severity of the symptoms, has been reported as a suitable dosage regimen for neonatal foals.


Cats and Dogs:

As a guide, the following dosage regimens of prepared Vytrate solution are recommended.

  • Cats, miniature dogs (<5kg) 125mL 2-3 times daily
  • Small dogs (5-10kg) 250mL 2-3 times daily
  • Medium dogs (11-20kg) 500mL 2-3 times daily
  • Large dogs (>20kg) 750mL 2-3 times daily

Many dogs find Vytrate palatable and will drink the solution voluntarily. Palatability for cats is variable. Vytrate may also be administered orally via dosage syringe. Treatment should be continued for 1 to 2 days after the animal appears clinically recovered and is feeding normally.
