Scourproof Extra is a unique triple-action formula which stabilises water and electrolyte balance in calves. Used during recovery or when at risk from digestive disturbance (diarrhoea).
A brownish powder which is a dietetic feed source of predominantly electrolytes and easily absorbable carbohydrates. It includes: Carbohydrate source (dextrose) 58.51g, sodium bicarbonate 4.56g, sodium chloride 2.78g, sodium citrate 2.85g, potassium chloride 1.61g.
Scourproof® Extra is administered for the particular nutritional purpose of stabilizing water and electrolyte balance in calves. It is intended for use in cases of risk of, during periods of, or recovery from digestive disturbance (diarrhoea). It is recommended that a veterinarian’s opinion be sought before use.
Scourproof® Extra is for oral administration only. There are two suggested protocols that can be followed depending on the calf; either continue with the usual diet alongside the administration of Scourproof® Extra between feeds or cease the usual diet during administration.
Prepare a fresh solution by mixing the contents of one sachet thoroughly with 1.5 litres of warm (40°C) water. Two subsequent administrations should be given at 12-hour intervals. A final administration comprising ½ sachet sachet dissolved in 0.75 litre warm water and 0.75 litre warm milk should be given after a further 12 hours.
If more frequent administration is required, then 1 sachet in 1.5 litres warm water should be given every 8 hours on six occasions. A final administration comprising ½ sachet dissolved in 0.75 litre warm water and 0.75 litre warm milk may be given 8 hours later if necessary.
Scourproof® Extra can be given by stomach tube. If it is administered this way, use the solution as soon as it has been mixed because it forms a semi-solid viscous solution over time. It is ideal to mix the solution as close as possible to the calf for quicker administration if giving via a stomach tube.
Scourproof® Extra is designed to form a thick, viscous solution when added to water. Empty the contents of the Scourproof® Extra sachet first, then add water to it. It can easily be administered from a semi-rigid bottle fitted with a rubber teat. Store in a dry place below 25°C. Keep out of the reach of children. For animal use only. This is not a veterinary medicine which is subject to authorisation by the Irish Medicines Board.
