Directions Of Use

Dosage & Application:

  • 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.

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.

Sheep (lambs):

  • Vytrate solution made up as directed should be administered orally to scouring or dehydrated neonatal lambs by drenching bottle or stomach tube.
  • As a guide 150 mL of Vytrate solution 3 times daily is a suitable dosage regimen.

Calves (Bought-in or stressed claves – 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 a normal diet.

Calves – Scouring:

  • 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 a period of scouring.
  • Diluted solution should be given between these milk feeds.
  • Replace with fresh solution every 24 hours.
  • Fresh drinking water should be available at all times.
  • Keep feeding utensils clean and avoid overfeeding.
  • Normal feeding should be resumed 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 & 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.

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.

Note:

  • When specific disease control (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Vytrate.
  • Stressed and scouring animals requiring rehydration are at risk of multiple organ dysfunction.
  • It is strongly recommended that veterinary advice is sought when considering treating dehydrated animals.
