It can be administered as intervention at the first indication of scouring, or as a supportive therapy after IV fluid treatment in dehydrated calves.

Why use Re-Sorb Oral Hydration Electrolyte Packets for Scouring Calves?

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

Oral glycine and glucose compounds are proven to be effective in treating dehydration associated with cholera in humans for years. The theory behind oral hydration therapy is based on active glycine and glucose absorption when orally administered to scouring animals. Absorption of glycine and glucose has been shown to lead to simultaneous water and sodium absorption. This theory has been proven in scouring animals. E. coli causes scours because it secretes toxins into the animal's small intestine. Although such toxins cause profuse electrolyte and water secretion, they do not have an effect on glycine or glucose absorption. When Re-Sorb is given, the glycine, glucose, sodium, and water are absorbed, causing net water gain and correction of dehydration. When diarrhea is virus-related, the process of the disease results in intestinal mucosa flattening, therefore leading to reduced milk absorption and digestion. Undigested milk makes its way to the colon, and fermentation of bacteria leads to more diarrhea. Replacing milk with Re-Sorb for a period of two days, then re-introducing a milk and Re-sorb mixture, will offer a chance for resting of the gastrointestinal mucosa.

Helpful Tips:

The three primary causes of scours and associated dehydration are nutritional deficiencies, viruses, and bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli. Dehydration is the primary reason for death in scouring calves, which is why Re-Sorb is so essential for animals suffering from scours.
