Three commercial oral rehydration solutions (Effydral ('E'), Lectade ('L') and Lectade Plus ('LP')) were evaluated in young calves with diarrhoea following the administration of E. coli. Twenty calves with non-fatal diarrhoea were included in each group and examined for electrolytes, acidosis (pH, PCO2 and TCO2), PCV and selected biochemical parameters. Faecal consistency and clinical state were also assessed. Eight calves were examined for plasma and ECF volume. Calves were treated with the… CONTINUE READING
