Scour treatment revitalises piglets

REVITALISE piglets with scour with the high energy nutrition product Nutri-scour, claims supplier Col-Late.

It says Nutri-Scour can cure scouring piglets in 24 hours by reversing electrolyte loss and acidosis, restoring the blood pH. It also forms a gel in the intestine which is said to absorb the pathogens that cause scouring.

Col-Late recommends one to two pumps for piglets up to 3kg and three or four pumps for piglets of 4-7kg.

Treatment costs 7-28p a piglet depending on size (01474-813999).
