Lactated Ringer is a useful tool for pet owners who have pets suffering from illnesses such as kidney disease. Dogs with this sickness sometimes suffer from a decrease in oral fluid intake (they're not drinking as much) and need fluid replenishment. To help with this situation and correct electrolyte depletion, metabolic acidosis, and dehydration, use proper doses from this 1000-mL bottle. You need a valid prescription from a licensed veterinarian in order to buy this product.
This sterile, nonpyrogenic solution is indicated for the correction of electrolyte depletion, metabolic acidosis, and dehydration of cattle, calves, horses, sheep and swine. May be injected intravenously, subcutaneously or intraperitoneally (except in horses) using strict aseptic technique. Each 100 mL contains 600 mg sodium chloride, 310 mg sodium lactate, 30 mg potassium chloride, and 20 mg calcium chloride dihydrate. Packaged in a hard plastic bottle that has a fold-flat integrated hook for hanging.
