Each L contains glucose 278.75 g, sodium chloride 53.44 g, glycine 38.56 g, citric acid monohydrate 3.28 g, potassium phosphate monobasic 25.53 g, potassium citrate 0.75 g.
Oral rehydration therapy containing a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes.
Nonantibiotic oral supportive treatment. Glucose and glycine are actively absorbed by the intestinal tract causing water and sodium to be absorbed simultaneously with these nutrients, ensuring a high degree of rehydration in scouring and dehydrated dogs and cats.
Diarrhoea and dehydration in dogs and cats, including those suffering debilitating viral disease (e.g. canine parvovirus or feline panleucopenia); convalescence.

Note. Where specific disease control (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade. Keep unused diluted solution in a clean container below 25°C; replace with fresh solution every 24 hours.
Liquid concentrate: 250 mL. (Sufficient to make up 3 L solution.)
