Lectade Sachet 64g

Notify Me When Available

Lectade Sachets when reconstituted as directed provide 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 Lectade Solution 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 (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade Solution.

Indicated for:
Dehydration (simple or associated with diseases such as canine parvovirus and feline panleucopaenia)
Post travelling stress and dehydration
Post-surgical or disease convalescence
Concomitant treatment of viral or bacterial scours

Directions for Use:

For oral treatment only.

Sections A and B must always be used together when preparing Lectade Solution.

Add the contents of section A and B of one Lectade Sachet to 2 litres of warm water, stir until dissolved.

To make 500 mL of Lectade Solution: using a 5 mL medicine spoon add 1 level spoonful of section A and 3 heaped spoonfuls of section B to 500 mL warm water, stir until dissolved, store remainder of powder in a dry place.

Most dogs find Lectade Solution palatable and will drink it voluntarily. Palatability for cats is variable.

Lectade Solution may also be administered orally via syringe.

Continue treatment for 1 to 2 days after the animal appears clinically recovered and is feeding normally.

Miniature - 125 mL, 2 to 3 times daily
Medium - 500 mL, 2 to 3 times daily

1 L/10 kg bodyweight daily, divided into 2 or more doses
1.5 L/10 kg bodyweight daily initially if dehydration is severe, divided into 3 or more doses
Scouring Calves: As soon as signs of scours are seen withdraw milk or milk replacer and feed the required dose of Lectade Solution for 2 days. For the next 2 days return to feeding milk at half the rate and, either separate to or mixed with, an equal amount of prepared Lectade Solution. Return to full milk feeding thereafter
Bought-in or Stressed Calves: Feed 2 L of Lectade Solution instead of milk as the first feed on arrival. For the next feed use 1 L milk or milk replacer mixed with 1 L Lectade Solution. Return to full milk feeding thereafter. Adequate colostrum must be fed to calves within 48 hours of birth.

A litter of 1 week old piglets will consume approximately 2-3 L per day
A weaner pig will consume approximately 1-2 L per day.
Lectade solution should be made available for 4 days. If there has been some improvement after 4 days, but the scour has not cleared completely, treatment may be continued for up to 8 days in total.
Suckling Piglets: Immediately scour symptoms show, fresh Lectade solution made up as directed should be made available, in a cube drinker or similar clean vessel, to the whole litter.
Weaned Pigs: If these pigs are showing signs of scour, make fresh Lectade solution available in a suitable clean vessel, cube drinker, trough or drum with nipple drinker

150 mL of Lectade solution 3 times daily is a suitable dosage regimen. Lectade solution made up as directed should be administered orally to scouring or dehydrated neonatal lambs by drenching bottle or stomach tube

Excellent quick health pick up

Great product for dehydrated motherless lambs, i would suggest though, when administering this product, that it be easier to use a stomach tube as drench gun is too tricky with such small animals. 150ml is also a lot to do through a drench gun in and out of the lambs mouth, as 10-15ml is all they can handle at one time...

Great product

After my dog had a knee operation, for alter patella, he is only 1yr old. he was off his food and fluids, he didn't go for a pee for almost 12 hours at a time and his pee was obviously very concentrated. Thanks to lectade, we made a bowl for him as we had kept this sachet from when he had a upset tummy, he drank the whole bowl and had a pee within the next 30 minutes, We still give him this occasionally when he doesn't drink much and he loves it.


With working dogs these are a must to have to avoid overheating

Lectade Sachets

A very useful product to have if your dog has a tummy upset and can't keep food or plain water down. Saved a few trips to the vet.

Being a Wild Life Carer I use Lectade Oral Hydration Theory on all my orphaned Kangaroo Joeys if needed.
