The Problem: Dehydration from scours, diarrhea, or other digestive problems poses a significant threat to the health and future productivity of newborn calves, and greatly increases expenses to care for the animals. Current products cannot help calves retain fluids quickly enough to avoid severe dehydration - the ultimate goal in managing scours.
Neonorm Calf helps proactively retain fluid in calves - aiding the animals in avoiding debilitating, dangerous levels of dehydration. Calves that avoid severe dehydration before it occurs are better equipped to fight the infection that led to scours.>As a fluid retention agent, often used in conjunction with practices such as fluid replacement, Neonorm Calf provides dairies and beef farms across the country with immediate benefits and greater control over the scours management process.
