ReSorb - 2.26oz packet
Zoetis - Helps prevent or treat calf dehydration from diarrhea.
Re-Sorb is a readily absorbed source of fluids and electrolytes, and can be given to newly purchased or severely stressed calves to prevent scouring problems. When treating diarrhea caused by a virus, the replacement of milk with Re-Sorb for 2 days followed by a gradual reintroduction of milk mixed with Re-Sorb, gives the gastrointestinal mucosa time to rest.
Species: Beef and dairy calves
