Lectade Concentrate is an oral rehydration therapy containing a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes with the added advantage of being a non-antibiotic oral supportive treatment.
Once diluted the mixture of Lectade is isotonic, ensuring glucose and glycine are actively absorbed by the intestinal tract, causing water and sodium to be absorbed simultaneously with these nutrients and resulting in a high degree of rehydration in scouring and dehydrated animals.
Where specific disease control (ie. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade.
Post-surgical or disease convalescence
Concomitant treatment of viral or bacterial scours

Palatability for cats is variable.
Lectade may also be administered orally via syringe.
Continue treatment for 1 to 2 days after the animal appears clinically recovered and is feeding normally.
