Pedialyte 2oz

 

Pedialyte is one of the best electrolytes you can use for proper oral hydration of debilitated and dehydrated animals, while yes it is labeled for use in humans, this product has proven itself to be outstanding for our animals in a rehabilitation situation.

 

 

Rehydrate little kittens with Pedialyte.
When little kittens develop diarrhea, they can quickly become dehydrated because of the loss of fluids through their loose stool. This can be fatal, especially in young, nursing kittens. To prevent dehydration and help to replace the electrolytes in your little kitty's body, feed him Pedialyte.
 

Pedialyte is an electrolyte replacement solution made for human infants. Although it's designed for people, it's also safe to use with kittens of any age to help them replace fluids in their bodies. Kittens can become dehydrated for many reasons, including diarrhea. You'll notice that when you gently grasp the skin of a dehydrated kitten between the shoulder blades, it won't bounce back as it would normally. To more quickly get your little one hydrated and prevent low blood sugar levels, feed Pedialyte to the kitten or offer it to a weaned kitty instead of water. Unlike plain water, Pedialyte contains minerals, also known as electrolytes, like sodium, potassium and chloride. These minerals are lost in kitties with diarrhea, and Pedialyte helps to replace them and more quickly hydrate the little ones than simply water alone.

Feeding

If your kitten has been weaned and is eating solid foods, you can add a teaspoon or two of tuna juice or chicken broth to these unflavored solutions to make them more appealing to your little one. Some kitties even like licking Pedialyte ice cubes added to their water to help with diarrhea. During the weaning process, your kitty may experience some diarrhea as he acclimates to the solid food. Mix a few teaspoons of Pedialyte into the food and formula mixture you are feeding your little weaning kitty.

Nursing Kitten Diarrhea

Diarrhea can occur in nursing kittens for a variety of reasons, including overfeeding or mixing their powdered formula in too rich a concentration. In these cases, bottle-feeding your little kitten Pedialyte mixed with formula should help to alleviate the diarrhea.

Dilute kitten formula by 1/3 with Pedialyte and feed your kitten as you normally would. When the stool is no longer loose, reduce the amount of Pedialyte mixed with the formula until you are feeding the little kitty only formula again. If the kitty's condition doesn't improve within 24 hours, visit the vet to get your little one checked out.

Considerations

Pedialyte is an emergency measure to prevent potentially fatal dehydration in little kittens. Visit the vet as soon as possible to be checked out. Your kitten may require intravenous fluids or treatment for bacterial infections or internal parasites, which could be the cause of the diarrhea. Before giving your kitty Pedialyte, consult with your vet to get an opinion on your  kitten's diarrhea and condition. She may recommend visiting an emergency vet if it's after hours in serious situations.
