- Product Description
There are different ways dehydration can occur. One of the dangers of diarrhea and being sick is dehydration, but young animals can get dehydrated too if they are not being fed breast milk for a while. When a young dehydrated animal has been found, it’s very likely their gastrointestinal tract isn’t functioning properly. This is because of the lack of essential minerals, like calcium and sodium. Feeding them milk straight away is unwise as it will probably be too heavy. A suitable solution is the combination of water and Rehydration. After that, you can start mixing the Rehydration with milk for pets.
- For recovery after illness
- For dogs, cats, ferrets and other small animals
- Use in combination with powdered milk or colostrum powder from Biestwinkel
