THREE  83.74g sachets LIFE-AID XTRA

A "must have" for any dog owners or breeder expecting a litter, can be given to females during whelping, and bottle or tube fed to dehydrated puppies for upto 24 hours then added to your own puppy formulas. (Breeders also make this in ready made formula's) We then add to puppies water when older.

We were recommended this a couple of years ago when we had tried everything to save our 9 day old puppy that we were hand rearing. Our puppy went down very quickly and badly dehydrated even after given fluids under skin. Vet said we were doing everything we could at the time to try to keep him going until i spoke with another breeder about the life aid. After giving Harry the life aid mixture We noticed the difference in him within that feed. We carried on with the life aid mixture for 24 hours then added to his milk and he has grown up to be a healthy Dogue De Bordeaux. Since that litter we would never be without this in the cupboard at all times as it is rapid treatment of bitches and puppies

* one sachet in 2 litres (3.5 pints) of warm milk, milk replacer or water

Packet can be split in smaller amounts for puppies and seal packet pack with a clip/peg

A water soluble powder contained in a single 83.74g sachet which forms an orange solution on mixing with water for oral administration.

Life-Aid Xtra, a powder for oral solution, is an oral rehydration product indicated for the reversal of the processes of dehydration, electrolyte loss, whether due to nutritional, bacterial, viral or cryptosporidial causes. Life-Aid Xtra is specifically formulated to provide both high levels of sodium (90 mmol/1) to enable rapid water absorption and also to provide increased bicarbonate precursor for the correction of acidosis. The increased glucose level provides more energy without interfering with rehydration.

Dosage: A solution, which is administered orally, is prepared as follows: dissolve the contents of one sachet in 2 litres (3.5 pints) of warm milk, milk replacer or water. Administration: Two litres of the solution, freshly prepared as directed, is given twice daily for 2 days. If the diarrhoea is severe the 2 litres of solution should be fed 3 or 4 times daily. The solution provides an adequate source of nutrients and electrolytes which are readily absorbed and may be administered on its own for a maximum of 4 days. Thereafter normal diet is resumed. A fine deposit of insoluble carrier may remain after dissolving the contents of the sachet- this does not affect the efficacy of the product.
