Rehydion gel is an oral rehydration treatment that can be added to milk, with guaranteed milk clotting. Rehydion gel has faster, guaranteed milk clotting and helps to maintain a low abomasal pH. Its high palatability and efficient dilution in milk allows weight gain to continue, even in cases of severe scour.
