Concentrated High Energy Electrolyte Rehydration Solution
DESIGNED TO COUNTER THE DEGREE & DURATION OF CALF SCOURS WITHOUT OSMOTIC PENALTY
Ideal for Calves Suffering from Scours & Diarrhea
Unique Complex Carbohydrate Sustains Energy & Nutritional Balance Without Osmotic Penalty

Unique Complex Carbohydrate (a carefully researched maltodextrin polymer of glucose molecules) facilitates rapid absorption of electrolytes and water into the blood without "Osmotic Penalty."  Osmotic penalty results when highly concentrated simple sugar dextrose/glucose-based electrolyte solutions draw water from the blood to the intestine to dilute the high concentration of dextrose/glucose molecules in the intestine.

While each C.H.E.E.R.S. Complex Carbohydrate maltodextrin molecule is comprised of many glucose molecules, the polymer chain serves to conceal and hold glucose in the intestine without revealing the concentration of glucose within each larger molecule  In other words, many glucose molecules create only one unit of "osmotic pressure."  Contrast standard livestock electrolyte solutions in which each separate dextrose (glucose) molecule is exposed and acts as a charge of pressure requiring osmotic balancing while waiting to cross the gut.

Our Complex Carbohydrate releases individual glucose molecules only when its polymer bonds are broken at the gut wall, at the instant of absorption, with no time to impose unfavorable osmotic pressure.  Sodium and water are immediately absorbed with the glucose into the blood where they are needed and can be distributed to the body.

Because Complex Carbohydrates allow more concentrated dextrose to be stored and staged in the gut before crossing the gut wall (complex chemical bonding reduces osmolarity of glucose), extra glucose (dextrose) is available for extra transport of fluid otherwise “stuck" in the bowels and gut to help reduce volume and duration of diarrhea.

Complex Carbohydrate provides energy and nutritional balance.

Electrolyte Salts - Sodium, Chloride, Calcium, Potassium,
Magnesium Ions & Sulfate

- Replace lost electrolytes which are needed to facilitate water  
  absorption.

- Help maintain proper pH equilibrium in blood to prevent dehydration  
  and acidosis and depression.  Depression refers to the outward
  symptoms of metabolic acidosis -- losing ability to such and stand.

- Help maintain muscle fitness and tissue development.

Metabolizable Bases/Acid Neutralizers - 
Citrate, Acetate & Propionate and Calcium Acetate:

- Increase water absorption for blood volume maintenance and
  balanced pH

- Provide metabolic energy for body functions.

- Contains no sodium bicarbonate and won't interfere with milk
  digestion

Glycine & Carbohydrate Water Transporters Work
When Primary Salt-Water Channel Is Disrupted

- Even when the primary sodium-water transport channel within the
  intestinal villi is disrupted by bacteria, viruses or stress,
  glucose and glycine can still be effective carriers of water across
  the gut wall

- C.H.E.E.R.S. uses two solutes, Glucose from Complex
  Carbohydrate, and Glycine, an amino acid.  Both solutes
  quickly transport electrolytes and water to the blood,
  even when the primary sodium-water channel is disrupted

Palatable, Digestible & Convenient

- Orange flavored. Mixes easily in warm water (105-120 degrees F).

- Will require slightly more mixing than dextrose solutions because of
  larger carbohydrate molecule size but the small amount of extra
  effort is worth the superior results.

- Contains no bicarbonate and won't interfere with digestion.

- Balances pH, won't interfere with feed digestion.


When To Use C.H.E.E.R.S.

Use C.H.E.E.R.S. during mild and moderate dehydration, when calves lose up to 8% of body weight.

Symptoms: loose watery stool, droopy ears, slight recession of eyeballs and skin tenting (requires 1-3 seconds for skin to return to smooth position after being pinched).

Once calves reach the severe stage, losing 9-11% of body weight, with eyes clearly sunken into sockets and skin tented for 4 seconds or more, IV or SubQ electrolytes
are recommended to prevent death.

Why Use C.H.E.E.R.S. vs Other Electrolytes

Sodium Bicarbonate Interferes with Milk Digestion & Calf Performance

Electrolytes that contain sodium bicarbonate help neutralize acidosis but interfere with milk digestion. Because of this interference, milk must be withheld from calves. When milk is withheld, calves lose weight, and the thymus gland (critical for immune system function) degenerates. As a result, calf development can be retarded for the whole growing period. C.H.E.E.R.S. does not contain sodium bicarbonate and does not interfere with milk digestion.

Standard Dextrose-Based Solutions Often Cause
“Osmotic Penalty” -- The Unfavorable Flow Of Water Into The Intestine

In an automatic process known as osmosis, the systems of the body seek to achieve equilibrium of concentrations of solutes (particles like salt and sugar) in solvents (blood in this case). Very high concentration of dextrose in the intestines (gut) may actually cause water to flow unfavorably from the blood, to the gut, in an attempt to dilute the dextrose to a level more similar to that of the blood. This unfavorable direction of water flow, due to high concentration of dextrose in the intestines is called osmotic penalty. Athletes who drink high sugar drinks during or after exercise sometimes experience light headedness or fainting. They are experiencing osmotic penalty. Water flows unfavorably from the blood to the gut, to dilute the relatively high concentration of sugar that is waiting in the gut, to cross the gut wall into the blood.
