Life-Aid Xtra, a powder for oral solution, is an oral rehydration product indicated for the reversal of the processes of dehydration, electrolyte loss and acidosis associated with scour in calves, whether due to nutritional, bacterial, viral or cryptosporidial causes.

Life-Aid Xtra is specifically formulated to provide both high levels of sodium (90 mmol/1) to enable rapid water absorption and also to provide increased bicarbonate precursor for the correction of acidosis. The increased glucose level provides more energy for the calf without interfering with rehydration.

Dosage & Administration

Dosage: A solution, which is administered orally, is prepared as follows: dissolve the contents of one sachet in 2 litres (3½ pints) of warm water.

Administration: All milk and milk replacer is withdrawn on first signs of scour. Two litres of the solution, freshly prepared as directed, is given twice daily for 2 days. The solution provides an adequate source of nutrients and electrolytes which are readily absorbed. For the next 4 feeds (2 days) 1 litre of solution and 1 litre of milk replacer is administered. Thereafter normal diet is resumed. If symptoms are severe, the solution may be fed 3 or 4 times daily. The solution may be given for a maximum of 4 days only, when administered on its own.

Life-Aid Xtra is best dissolved by slowly adding the contents of one sachet to 2 litres of warm water, stirring gently. A fine deposit of insoluble carrier may remain after
dissolving the contents of the sachet; this does not affect the efficacy of the product.
