How does Re-Sorb Oral Hydration Electrolyte Packets for Scouring Calves work?

Oral glucose/glycine compounds have been used with excellent success to treat dehydration accompanying human cholera for many years. The rationale for oral rehydration therapy is based upon the active absorption of glucose and glycine when given orally to scouring animals. Their absorption is linked to the simultaneous absorption of sodium and water. This principle has been verified in scouring animals. E. coli produces scours by secreting toxins in the small intestine. These toxins, while causing profuse secretion of water and electrolytes, have no effect on glucose/glycine absorption in the calf. When Re-Sorb is administered, the glucose/glycine along with the water and sodium are absorbed resulting in a net gain in water thereby correcting the dehydration. In diarrhea caused by viruses, the disease process causes a flattening of the intestinal mucosa which reduces digestion and absorption of milk. The undigested milk passes into the colon where bacterial fermentation results in additional diarrhea. The replacement of milk with Re-Sorb for 2 days followed by a gradual re-introduction of milk mixed with Re-Sorb, provides an opportunity for the gastrointestinal mucosa to rest.

What special precautions are there?

Keep away from children and animals. Warning : For use in calves only. Not for Human Use. Precautions : Re-Sorb should not be used in animals with severe dehydration (down, comatose, or in a state of shock). Such animals need intravenous fluids since oral therapy in these cases is too slow. A veterinarian should be consulted in such severely scouring calves or in cases requiring antibacterial therapy. Antibacterial therapy is often indicated in bacterial scours due to E. coli and/or Salmonella. Re-Sorb does not contain antibacterial agents. Adequate colostrum intake during the first 12 hours is essential for healthy, vigorous calves. Re-Sorb is not nutritionally complete if administered by itself for long periods of time. It should not be administered beyond the recommended treatment period without the addition of milk or milk replacer.

What to do if overdose?
