Lectade – Water Soluble Powder Supplement for Cattle & Horses

Lectade is an excellent supplement that aids in the treatment of scours – diarrhoea in lambs, calves, kids, piglets and horses. It prevents and reverses the dehydration and loss of electrolytes and energy. It is an excellent electrolyte supplement for horses especially for working horses and for horses after exercise or racing. The oral supplement helps reverse the hypoglycaemia and aids recovery in cases of pregnancy toxaemia in ewes. Lectade supplies required nutrients during diarrhoea and helps in recovery process. It helps to minimize dehydration and boosts rehydration. Enriched with high nutritional value, Lectade is well suited as the first feed for newly bought-in calves, piglets, Iambs and kids where their environment is changed and where irregular feeding and the stress of transport may have upset normal digestion. The dietary supplement is highly palatable and readily accepted by the young ones.

b) Piglets

Suckling piglets: when showing signs of diarrhoea, Lectade® solution should be made available to the entire litter in a cube drinker or similar clean vessel.

Weaned pigs: solid feed restriction for 1-2 days should be imposed on weaners that suffer from scours. Lectade® solution should be made available to patients in a vessel-cube drinker, trough or drum with nipple drinker.

Agalactia: Where pigs are receiving reduced milk or none at all, Lectade® solution should be made available for a maximum of 2 days in order to prevent dehydration.

Stressful times: half the normal strength (= mix 1 pair of twin sachets A & B in 4 litres of water) and feed for 2 - 3 days following stressful periods such as weaning, transportation, etc.

c) Lambs and Kids

Feed 150-200 ml of the Lectade® solution made up as directed twice to four times daily as required. The solution should be fed at the animal’s body temperature using a feeding bottle and teat or stomach tube. Lambs and kids should be allowed to continue to suckle. Any unused solution should be kept in a clean container in a cool place but should be discarded 24 hours thereafter.

Best Rehydrating product

My cat got severely ill last month and suffered from diarrhea. After I treated her with Lectade, her condition improved in one hour and after a couple of hours she was completely normal. I was so happy to have found such an amazing product.
