Scouring Calves?

Fresh Start Recover is the simple answer for scouring calves. Containing electrolytes, energy and alkalising agents. A dietetic complementary supplement for the stabilisation of water and electrolyte balance to support the physiological digestion.

Fresh Start Recover is an orally administered solution indicated for use with scouring calves during periods of or recovery from diarrhoea. Calves with persistent diarrhoea should be referred to a veterinary adviser.

Downland Fresh Start Recover is a 3 in 1 oral rehydration formula providing:
1. Electrolytes – sodium, potassium and chloride to help restore electrolyte balance.
2. Energy – facilitates sodium and therefore water absorption from the gut through the inclusion
of dextrose (glucose).
3. Alkalising agent – helps reverse acidosis through the provision of an alkalising agent
(sodium acetate).

Benefits of using Downland Fresh Start Recover

  • Oral fluid therapy using Downland Fresh Start Recover is the key to success with scouring calves, and has the advantage of being highly effective, economically viable and easy to administer on farm.
  • The aim of fluid therapy and the use of Downland Fresh Start Recover is to provide additional water and electrolytes, to help support improved absorption from the gut by allowing sodium uptake, and to provide energy.
  • Acidosis is one of main causes of death of calves with diarrhoea. Research has shown that correction of acidosis improves survival in diarrhoeic calves. Downland Fresh Start Recover contains the alkalising agent sodium acetate to help reverse the acidosis.
  • Scours causes significant financial losses to both beef and dairy enterprises. Death of the calf is not the only way in which losses are incurred. Calves have a reduced FCE and DLWG, resulting in an extended rearing period. Beef animals have a lower sale value and are older when slaughtered and in dairy cows the potential milk yield is reduced. Downland Fresh Start Recover helps restore gut health quickly to reduce these costs.
