Frequently Asked Questions

Use a sterile needle and proper technique when giving the Electrolyte Solutions. The amount and frequency of administration will be determined by your veterinarian and is dependent upon your pet's response to the treatment.

Not for use in animals who are hypersensitive (allergic) to any of the ingredients. Use with extreme care in animals with heart disease, kidney disease, or obstruction of the urinary tract, since overhydration may more easily occur in these animals (see Signs of Toxicity/Overdose). Not to be used in animals whose kidneys are not producing urine.

Side effects are unlikely if the proper dose is given.

Abscesses or infection may occur at the injection site if a sterile needle and proper technique were not used during administration. If your pet experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma. If you observe any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Store in a manufacturer's packaging at room temperature. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

If an animal becomes overhydrated (too much fluid is given), blood potassium levels may become too low, causing muscle and heart abnormalities. Signs may include weakness, constipation, rapid breathing, and increased heart rate. Overhydration may also cause fluid to accumulate in the lungs (pulmonary edema) and increase the workload for the heart. Signs may include increased or rapid breathing, coughing, or wheezing.

If you notice any of these signs, stop fluid therapy and contact your veterinarian immediately.

Consult your veterinarian before using Electrolyte Solutions with any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, since interactions may occur. Some injectable medications are not compatible with the components in the solution. Consult with your veterinarian before adding any medications to the bag of solution.
