Neomycin is a selective antibiotic that has been proven a powerful fighter in the treatment of bacterial scours. It works primarily against the bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract. Oxytetracycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to other parts in the body to fight off secondary bacterial infections associated with bacterial diarrhea and for the treatment of bacterial pneumonia.
The electrolytes will supply the salts that have been lost as a result of diarrhea. The critical fluid balance in the calves is restored, reversing the process of dehydration.
A complete vitamin mineral package is added to restore and support the needs of the scouring baby calf. Vitamin A will help in restoring and maintaining the stomach lining. High levels of B complex vitamins improve appetite, digestion and growth functions. Vitamin D will encourage healthy bone and muscle development. Additional levels of vitamin E, C and B will aid in building immunity in the baby calves.
