Darrow’s Solution is a pleasantly flavoured oral glucose-electrolyte mixture for small and large animals. The solution replaces fluids and electrolytes which have been lost in cases of diarrhoea and corrects the subsequent dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. It is readily accepted by convalescing animals and is of benefit to them.
When diluted as directed each ml contains potassium chloride 1.5mg, sodium chloride 2mg, sodium citrate 2.5mg and glucose 25mg.
Fluid, electrolyte and energy replacement following diarrhoea.
