Lectade Liquid Concentrate 250ml
Lectade Liquid Concentrate (250ml) contains a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes. Lectade oral rehydration therapy is recommended as a non-antibiotic supportive treatment for dehydration and diarrhoea, including those suffering debilitating viral disease (e.g. canine parvovirus or feline panleucopenia).
- Dehydration (simple or associated with diseases such as canine parvovirus and feline panleucopaenia)
- Post travelling stress and dehydration
- Post-surgical or disease convalescence
- Concomitant treatment of viral or bacterial scours
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.
