Enteric-coated bolus helps proactively retain fluid in calves – helping avoid debilitating, dangerous levels of dehydration. Dehydration from scours, diarrhea or other digestive problems poses a significant threat to the health and future productivity of newborn calves, and significantly increases expenses and labor required to care for them. Current products cannot help calves retain fluids quickly enough to avoid severe dehydration &ndash the ultimate goal in managing scours. Calves that avoid severe dehydration before it occurs are better equipped to fight off the infection that led to scours. Operates at cellular level to inhibit flow of fluids into intestines, where vital fluids leave body during scours. Not an electrolyte or nutritional supplement.
Each bolus contains proprietary standardized botanical extract of sustainably harvested Croton lechleri.
Directions: Give orally to pre-weaned calves once every 12 hours, as needed, for up to 3 days. Compatible with electrolytes and other standards of care. Small bolus formulation allows for easy delivery by hand or balling gun.
30 bolus size = 15 daily doses.
A clinically proven solution:
A study evaluating Neonorm Calf's effect on diarrhea in newborn calves was published in Journal of Dairy Science, the official, peer-reviewed journal of the American Dairy Science Association. The study was conducted by researchers from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.
The study results suggest that Neonorm Calf can significantly increase the fecal dry matter of neonatal calves with experimentally-induced enterotoxigenic E. coli diarrhea. Higher fecal dry matter is an indication of less water loss and lower dehydration risk.
The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) has reviewed NeonormTM Calf and determined that it is allowed for use in compliance with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program.
