When should Rudduck Mega-Lyte be administered?
Mega-Lyte should be administered when any signs of calf scouring are apparent. The scour can be white, yellow, grey or blood-stained and is often foul-smelling. Although more common in hand-reared calves, it can also occur in calves which are suckling their mothers.
How do I administer Rudduck Mega-Lyte?
To prepare Mega-Lyte solution, dissolve 100g in two litres of warm water, i.e. 35’C, (scoop inside: 1 scoop contains 65g of Mega-Lyte).
Calves to be fed 2L of ‘Mega-Lyte solution’ morning and night for two days. Following this, calves should be administered alternating rations of Mega-Lyte and regular feed for a further two days. Normal feeding may then resume.
To help ensure maximum success for the treatment of calves:
- Separate scouring calves from the main group
- Ensure calf consumes entire treatment ration (this is mostly achieved by either tethering or individual penning affected calves)
- Provide clean, dry shelter and minimize stress for calves undergoing treatment
- Provide clean water at all times
Store below 30°C (Room Temperature) in a dry place away from light. Reseal immediately after use.
Triple-rinse container before dispose and add rinsing to the medicated water. Dispose empty containers in the garbage or bury empty container at a depth of 500mm at a licensed/approved disposal site. Do not burn empty containers or product.
