Help with Heat - How much Vit Electrolytes to add to drinking water

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by McGoo, Jun 22, 2008.

    For hot days I've read that giving icy cold water is good and that supplementing with Vitamins and Electrolytes helps too. So I purchased a package of Durvet Vit and Electrolytes, but the directions are confusing. How much should I use for a gallon of water? 1 oz? Is that way too much?

    Appreciate any help. Thank all!

    "If you have the 4 oz. packet of Vitamins and Electrolytes then you would mix 1/2 teaspoon into 1 gallon of water.

    If you have the 8 oz. packet of Vitamins and Electrolytes then you would mix 3/4 teaspoon into 1 gallon of water. "
