Sacrolyte

An Electrolyte Powder for Calves and Pigs

Sacrolyte calf and pig is used to stabilise the water and electrolyte imbalance that occurs in pigs and calves during periods of stress, such as weaning or digestive disturbance (diarrhoea) during illness. Diarrhoea or scour prevents the absorption of fluids and essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements from the intestine. This leaves the scouring animal weak and dehydrated.

Sacrolyte is composed of easily absorbable carbohydrate, chelated minerals, vitamins and trace elements which offers a simple solution to replace these vital minerals and electrolytes lost during this period. It also possesses a unique gelling agent which has the ability to retain water and slows down the movement of undigested food through the gut.
