Lectade Plus Powder is an electrolyte mix that is commonly used to treat dehydration and replace losses after intense sweating. It also contains glucose for energy. Both sachets A and B are used together to make two litres of electrolyte solution. It can also be used along with medications in the treatment of scouring calves.
It can be useful in a number of different situations:
1. After diarrhoea, to replace lost electrolytes & reverse the dehydration process
2. After prolonged exercise, to replace electrolytes that have been lost through sweating.
3. Treating subclinical (not yet showing obvious signs of) dehydration. For example when blood results show increased serum protein & packed cell volume.
Sachets are administered by dissolving sachets A & B together in 2 litres of warm (35° C) drinking water.
Warnings & Contraindications- Discard any unused solution after 24 hours. Always feed sachets A & B together.
Pregnancy & Lactation- Safe to use during pregnancy & lactation.
