Rate of Use
Vetsense VyLyte is a liquid concentrate requiring dilution with fresh clean water where final volume is 12.5 times quantity of concentrate. To make up 1L of ready to consume liquid, measure 80mL of VyLyte and add water to make 1L. (measure 10mL and add water to 125mL, measure 160mL and add water to make 2L, etc.)
|VyLyte Liquid||Water||Total Volume|
|Each VyLyte pack size makes: 250mL = 3.125L , 1L = 12.5L , 5L = 62.5L, 20L = 250L|
ALWAYS ENSURE CLEAN DRINKING WATER IS AVAILABLE WHEN USING VETSENSE VYLYTE. DISCARD SOLUTION DAILY AND REPLACE WITH FRESH SOLUTION EVERY 24 HOURS. Provide diluted VETSENSE VyLyte at first sign of nutritional scouring to aid and replace lost fluid and electrolytes.
SEEK VETERINARY ADVICE IF TREATING SICK AND DEBILITATED ANIMALS
Administer in a clean drinking vessel as soon as signs of scouring appear.
Suckling Piglets: A litter of week-old piglets will consume roughly 2-3L/day. Check that diluted solution, drinking water or sow’s milk is always available. Check quantity of diluted solution every 12 hours and replenish as necessary.
Piglets can be dosed directly using an appropriate applicator; 20-30mL diluted VyLyte solution, 3 or 4 times a day.
Weaned Pigs: Limit feed intake for 1-2 days, continue supply of drinking water with weaners consuming 1-2L/day/animal as a guide.
Treatment period (all pigs): Diluted VyLyte solution can be given for 4 days. If scouring persists, application is suitable for 8 days in total.
Bought-in Calves: At the first feed on arrival, feed 2L of diluted VyLyte solution instead of milk. At the next feed, give 1L of diluted VyLyte solution but do not mix with milk or milk replacer. Feed normal diet post application.
Scouring Calves: 1L to 1.5L of diluted VyLyte solution per 10kg of bodyweight daily into two or more daily doses. Severe dehydration can happen if scouring is well established, increase diluted solution over 3 or 4 separate doses.
Directions: To retain nutrient and energy consumption, continue normal milk feeding during periods of scouring. Fresh water should always be available, with diluted VyLyte solution given between milk feeds. Replace solution every 24 hours.
Give 150mL-200mL of fresh diluted VyLyte solution, 2-4 times daily warming solution to body temperature and given through a feeding bottle with teat.

Give 160mL undiluted VyLyte solution per animal using applicable drench gun. Repeat every 4-6 hours if required or as directed by a veterinary surgeon.
