Lectade Oral Rehydration Therapy is a water-soluble electrolyte replacer for dehydrated animals containing glucose. Lectade comes in single sachets and makes 2 litres of fluid. It is a non-antibiotic supportive treatment. Glucose and glycine are actively absorbed by the intestinal tract causing water and sodium to be absorbed simultaneously with these nutrients. This ensures a high degree of rehydration in scouring and dehydrated dogs, cats and young farm animals.

Dosage and Administration
