Goat Electrolytes Print E-mail
Written by Administrator-GL   
Saturday, 02 June 2007

Electrolytes for your goats are important when replacing body fluids lost from dehydration whether it is from illness or hot weather.  

My Personal Choice for electrolytes is Vi-tal, it has minerals, electrolytes, and vitamins and goes along way unlike many of the other dry mixes that have fillers and not nearly the balanced ingredients this product has.

Vi-tal
Vi-tal is a concentrated, water-dispersable nutritional supplement of essential vitamins, electrolytes and trace minerals. Use Vi-tal to aid in growth and productivity, as well as to stimulate water consumption and maintain balance of body fluids in livestock and poultry.

Vi-tal contains vitamin A, vitamin D3, vitamin E, riboflavin, d-Panothenic acid, niacin, vitamin B12, menadione sodium bisulfate complex (source of vitamin K), Thiamine mononitrate, folic acid, pyridoxine hydrochloride, plus electrolytes and trace minerals from: potassium chloride, sodium chloride, magnesium sulfate, calcium gluconate, sodium bicarbonate, manganese sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, ethylene diamine dihydriodide, and cobalt sulfate.

Dosage:

High level supplementation: mix 1 packet per 128 gallons of water

Moderate level of supplementation: mix 1 packet per 256 gallons of water

Low level of supplementation: mix 1 packet per 384 gallons of water

 

Can be found at most Tractor Supply Stores or you can contact the company direct.
