SPRAYFO OSMOFIT

Dehydration from calf diarrhoea is a serious problem

Dehydration resulting from calf diarrhoea is the cause of 55% of all calf deaths in their first stage of life.

Depending on whether the diarrhoea is caused by nonpathogenic or pathogenic causes, there is a need to change (feeding) management, buy the immune system time to overcome the infection or if really needed, provide veterinary treatment.

Dehydration and the consequential metabolic acidosis thereof is what ultimately makes the calf succumb to an illness state that is commonly referred to as calf diarrhoea. Trials carried out at the Trouw Nutrition Calf & Beef Research Center demonstrated that Sprayfo OsmoFit is able to keep and/or restore blood pH of calves within the normal range whereas pure water and hypertonic solutions are not, or less able to do so.

In case of diarrhoea

Sprayfo OsmoFit

Sprayfo OsmoFit is to be used in case of risk of, during periods of, or recovery from diarrhoea.

The composition of OsmoFit focuses on:

  • Mainly sodium salts and to a lesser extent potassium salts to correct the losses of these electrolyte minerals, to enable water absorption and counter metabolic acidosis;
  • Highly digestible components that provide energy and do not influence extra outflow of water. Solutions with a higher osmolality value than blood (being isotonic) will subtract water from the body: so called hypertonic solutions. For this reason, OsmoFit’s patent pending formula has been designed to be a hypotonic solution with a low osmolality value;
  • Buffering agents that counter - and prevent further occurence of - metabolic acidosis.

The result
Sprayfo OsmoFit reduces fecal water loss from the first day of treatment*

Surveys among beef and veal farmers indicate that after transport calves and cattle if provided water will indeed drink, and drink more if the water provided has been reinforced with the required nutrients.
Field trials done with animals either drinking water with HydraFit or without showed increased water intake and rumination activity. Both are indicators of increased welfare and supportive of increased feed intake.

Why do calves benefit from Sprayfo OsmoFit?

Regardless of the cause of diarrhoea (e.g. nutritional or induced by pathogens), there is a need to act quickly to avoid complications. Sprayfo OsmoFit is a dietetic complementary feed for calves, developed to stabilize the water and electrolyte balance to support physiological digestion in case of diarrhoea.
