Composition

Each L contains glucose 278.75 g, sodium chloride 53.44 g, glycine 38.56 g, citric acid monohydrate 3.28 g, potassium phosphate monobasic 25.53 g, potassium citrate 0.75 g.

Description

Oral rehydration therapy containing a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes.

Actions

Nonantibiotic 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.

Indications

Diarrhoea and dehydration in dogs and cats, including those suffering debilitating viral disease (e.g. canine parvovirus or feline panleucopenia); convalescence.

Dosage and Administration

Dilute 1 part concentrate with 11.5 parts water and give orally, following specific treatment for the condition indicated. The following doses are recommended, given 2 to 3 times daily.

Dogs. Miniature: 125 mL; small: 250 mL; medium: 500 mL; large: 750 mL. Many dogs find Lectade palatable and will drink it voluntarily.

Cats. 125 mL. Palatability for cats is variable; Lectade may also be administered orally via dosing syringe.

Continue treatment for 1 to 2 days after the animal appears clinically recovered and is feeding normally.

Note. Where specific disease control (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade. Keep unused diluted solution in a clean container below 25°C; replace with fresh solution every 24 hours.

Presentation

Liquid concentrate: 250 mL. (Sufficient to make up 3 L solution.)

Storage

Store below 25°C (air conditioning). Protect from moisture. Prepared solutions can be kept refrigerated for 24 hours, or frozen for seven days before discarding.

IndicationDiarrhoea and dehydration in dogs and cats, including those suffering debilitating viral disease (e.g. canine parvovirus or feline panleucopenia); convalescence. Fluid replacement and electrolytes for scouring or dehydrated calves, pigs, lambs and foals. A suitable first feed for bought in or stressed calves and pigs. An aid in the treatment of pregnancy toxaemia in ewes.
ActionsNonantibiotic 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, cats and young farm animals.
Dosage and AdministrationDilute 1 part concentrate with 11.5 parts water and give orally, following specific treatment for the condition indicated. The following doses are recommended, given 2 to 3 times daily.Dogs. Miniature: 125 mL; small: 250 mL; medium: 500 mL; large: 750 mL. Many dogs find Lectade palatable and will drink it voluntarily.Cats. 125 mL. Palatability for cats is variable; Lectade may also be administered orally via dosing syringe.Continue treatment for one to two days after the animal appears clinically recovered and is feeding normally.Cattle. Bought-in calves. Feed 2 L diluted Lectade solution instead of milk at the same time as, but not mixed with milk or milk replacer. Thereafter feed normal diet. Scouring calves. Give diluted Lectade solution 1 to 1.5 L/10 kg bodyweight daily, divided into two or more daily doses. If scouring is established or severe, causing serious dehydration, the higher dose should be used initially and fed in three or four divided doses. 2 L diluted Lectade solution given night and morning will be adequate in many cases. To maintain adequate energy and nutrient intake, milk feeding should continue as normal during periods of scouring. Diluted Lectade 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 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.Pigs. Duration of treatment: diluted Lectade solution should be made available for four days, but if scour has not cleared completely, treatment may be continued for up to eight days in total. Seek veterinary advice if there is no sign of improvement. Periods of stress: For the two to three days following any period of stress (weaning, transporting etc.) diluted Lectade solution will help to increase fluid and electrolyte consumption and absorption, so minimising any possible setback. As made up solution is extremely palatable and excessive drinking may occur, for this indication only, solution diluted at half the recommended strength may be used. Suckling piglets. Immediately scour symptoms appear, fresh diluted Lectade solution should be made available in a clean vessel, to the whole litter. A litter of one week old piglets will consume approximately 2 to 3 L/day. The amount consumed will increase with the age of the piglets. Piglets may be dosed individually, by giving 20 to 30 mL diluted Lectade solution three or four times a day, but take care to avoid choking. Take care to ensure that piglets are not left without Lectade 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 Lectade solution available in a suitable clean vessel. Restrict solid feed intake for one to two days but continue to supply fresh drinking water. As a general guide, weaners will consume 1 to 2 L/weaner/day.Sheep. Scouring lambs. Give 150 to 200 mL fresh diluted Lectade solution two to four times daily as required. The lamb should also suck the ewe. Ewes with pregnancy toxaemia. Administer 160 mL undiluted solution per ewe using suitable drenching equipment. Repeat at four to six hour intervals as necessary. Prompt treatment as soon as symptoms appear improves the likelihood of complete recovery.Horses. Foals. Administer diluted Lectade solution solution orally to scouring or dehydrated foals by drenching bottle or stomach tube. As a guide, administer 1 to 2 L of fresh diluted Lectade solution two to three times daily, depending on bodyweight and severity of the symptoms. Note. Where specific disease control (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade. Stressed and scouring animals needing rehydration are at risk of multiple organ dysfunction. It is strongly recommended that veterinary advice is sought when considering treating dehydrated animals.Keep unused diluted solution in a clean container below 25°C; replace with fresh solution every 24 hours.
