Recharge Rehydration Concentrate

Suitable for: Horses in hot weather, travelling horses, dehydrated horses, performance horses, or horses after exertion or sweat loss

Founded in 1968 by a veterinarian by the name of Pierre-Richard Dick, Virbac is dedicated exclusively to animal health, formulating a range of veterinary pharmaceuticals, vaccines and a wide range of pet care products for horses, dogs and cats.

This equine-specific sports drink replaces all the essential electrolytes and glucose that is lost when horses sweat up heavily, are dehydrated or unwell, or horses that live in hot climates. This palatable, apple-flavoured solution can either be given directly by mouth with ad lib fresh water available, or mixed into fresh water to encourage drinking. Increasing water intake after exertion, or during times of stress, is invaluable in maintaining normal hydration, ensuring that body temperature is maintained, and promoting efficient and healthy recovery.

  • Rapidly restores electrolyte levels 
  • Added glucose for energy and drive electrolyte absorption.
  • Versatile and palatable oral rehydration fluid 

Directions: Recharge concentrate solution can be administered by oral syringe over the back of the tongue, with immediate access to clean, fresh water provided to drink as required. Alternatively, Recharge can be diluted with clean, fresh drinking water as directed. Dosage rates are for 450 – 500 kg horses. Offer half dose volumes to ponies less than 350 kg.
