Lectade 2.2oz (64gm) Sachets

Lectade Sachets when reconstituted as directed provide an oral rehydration therapy containing a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes with the added advantage of being a non-antibiotic oral supportive treatment.

  • Once diluted Lectade solution is isotonic, ensuring glucose and glycine are actively absorbed by the intestinal tract, causing water and sodium to be absorbed simultaneously with these nutrients and resulting in a high degree of rehydration in scouring and dehydrated animals.
  • Where specific disease control (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade solution.
  • Assists with diarrhoea.
  • Dehydration (simple or associated with diseases such as canine parvovirus and feline panleucopaenia) post travelling stress and dehydration.
  • Post-surgical or disease convalescence.
  • Concomitant treatment of viral or bacterial scours.
  • Most dogs find Lectade solution palatable and will drink it voluntarily.
  • Palatability for cats is variable.
  • Lectade solution may also be administered orally via syringe.

Dosage: 

  • For oral treatment only.
  • Sections A and B must always be used together when preparing Lectade solution.
  • Add the contents of section A and B of one Lectade Sachet to 67floz (2 litres) of warm water, stir until dissolved.

To make 16.floz (500mls) of Lectade Solution:

  • Using a 0.16floz (5mls) medicine spoon add 1 level spoonful of section A and 3 heaped spoonfuls of section B to16.floz (500mls) of warm water, stir until dissolved.
  • Store remainder of powder in a dry place.
  • Continue treatment for 1 to 2 days after the animal appears clinically recovered and is feeding normally.

  • Lectade solution should be made available for 4 days.

  • Immediately scour symptoms show, fresh Lectade solution made up as directed should be made available, in a cube drinker or similar clean vessel, to the whole litter.
