Calf vigour can be influenced by many factors, an unbalanced diet can lead to many calf disorders. This may result from the quality or quantity of the colostrum or milk replacer being fed, poor nutrition, infection and stress to name but a few.
Sustain®'s unique combination of nutrients, essential salts, electrolytes and a probiotic, enhances nutrient intake and lowers the pH in the gut allowing natural flora to thrive. Give one sachet immediately on detecting scour. In late detections or severe cases a second sachet is recommended.
Many calf disorders are of a nutritional nature and are usually down to lack of colostrum, overfeeding of milk or too rich a mixture, incorrect temperature, irregular feeding, poor housing, or a combination of these.
Sustain® a complementary feedingstuff, can help by ensuring the liquid fed is well balanced with the correct nutrients and electrolytes to help maintain good health.
Sustain® provides the ability to continue milk feeding whilst overcoming the nutritional slight change. There is no need for milk withdrawal.

If no improvement is seen a second sachet may be given 12 hours after the first. If there is still no improvement veterinary advice should be sought.
