Mixing and Feeding Directions
To help prevent dehydration or during periods of summer heat stress: Mix 0.5 to 1 ounce (1/2 to 1 scoop)* of Rite-Lyte in 2 quarts of warm water or milk solution. Feed at least twice a day for 2–3 days or until the calf is no longer at risk of becoming dehydrated. Continue to offer the calf its normal milk feeding schedule.
For calves on milk with mild to moderate dehydration: Mix 2 ounces (2 scoops)* of Rite-Lyte in 2 quarts of warm water and feed two to three times a day for 2–3 days or until the calf is no longer dehydrated. Continue to offer the calf its normal milk feeding schedule.
For calves with severe dehydration: Use Calf Res-Q electrolyte and follow label directions. Other supportive therapy may be needed. If calves are not sucking or cannot stand due to severe dehydration, consider using sub-Q or IV fluids for best results. Consult with your local veterinarian on what is the best treatment for these calves. Always offer free-choice water to calves that are being fed electrolyte solutions.
*The enclosed scoop contains approximately 1 ounce when level full.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place for maximum stability. Avoid leaving package open for extended periods of time.
Cautions and Warnings
In cases of calf health and where calves are dehydrated and/or do not respond quickly to electrolyte feeding, contact and follow your local veterinarian's treatment recommendations.
