CANINE INFECTIOUS GASTROENTERITIS TREATMENT



Fluid therapy

Fluid and electrolyte loss can be managed through the administration of crystalloids parenterally. Lactated Ringer's solution is preferred where significant vomiting and diarrhoea are present. The fluid should be administered through an intravenous catheter at a rate of 100-150 ml/kg/day until the patient is rehydrated and then at a rate of 66 ml/kg/day for maintenance plus an amount to cover any extraordinary losses (vomiting or diarrhoea).
