Electrolife™

Electrolife It is recommended that when calves first arrive at their destination following transportation they are fed with ElectroLife as it will help replace fluids and electrolytes lost following dehydration due to the stress caused by transport. When rearing calves nutritional scours may also occur. ElectroLife will also help replace fluids and electrolytes lost following dehydration caused by scours. Please note that ElectroLife should not be used to treat severely dehydrated animals or animals with life threatening scours. ElectroLife should be used whenever calves are being transported or when the first signs of scours are seen.
