Administer electrolyte solution to calf using suitable oral dosing tube or drench gun. Once prepared, discard solution after 24 hours. Separate dosage of electrolyte solution from milk feeds by at least 15 minutes, and by 4 hours if possible. In any case, do not dilute milk or milk replacer. Diluted milk does not form a suitable clot and may in itself, cause scours. If withholding milk and milk replacer, re-introduce gradually over 1-2 days and feed normally thereafter.
