ELectrogen D+ is an oral rehydrating formula fortified with vitamins, dextrose and glycine for maximum absorption. It replaces loss fluids and electrolytes during hot weather, wet droppings, diarrhea and vomiting cases to prevent acidosis and death due to prostration and electrolyte imbalance. Massive doses of water and fat-soluble vitamins are also included to support body functions especially during stressed periods and hot weather when feed intake is low.
Dextrose provides an immediate source of energy especially during cases of diarrhea and poor feed intake in calves, piglets and poultry. It does not need to be digested, hence can be immediately absorbed in the intestine. Without adequate dextrose, electrolytes are absorbed slowly, thus slow-acting. The presence of glucose ensures that electrolytes will be readily available in the body to correct imbalances due to disease and stress. To further hasten electrolyte absorption, glycine is included in the formulation. Research proved that glycine facilitates electrolytes and water absorption in the intestine in the presence of glucose.
