how much glucose we talking in say a litre of water???


I'd read the tub/box the Glucose comes in and mix it like you would for a child.

I like this stuff http://wynnstayonlin...-aid-960ml.html to be honest I think it's more or less the same as Recharge only in a different bottle and half the price.


I used this in the passed and was told by a greyhound vet, it can feck up a dog big time!!, as it is meant for cattle, pigs and sheep!!!
It nearly killed a greyhound i know of!!
Stick to Recharge, what would you rather have, a dead dog for the sake of saving a few penny's. or a live one using the correct electrolyte like Recharge??

What did the Greyhound vet have on his shelf Recharge?? LOL

If you look on the Norbrook website at the ingredients there's nothing in Life Aid that isn't in Recharge. I'm not one for saving pennies infact sometimes I'm a bit of a thick c**t and will usually buy the dearest thing as I recon it will better as its the most expensive but a few greyhound lads local started using this and was raving on about it so I gave it ago and I like it and the place I bought it was at the greyhound track. There's alot of stuff meant for farm animal use but there's still plenty of dog lads using it to good effect the only thing you need to watch is over dosing but it's easy to adjust.

I've used this quite a few times over a couple of years and I have found it to be good.

I don't know anything about the cheaper stuff but i would rather use nothing than go for the cheaper option..after all we are only using the recharge for the dog's benifit so i'm sure they deserve the best we can get.. :thumbs:

Trust me, i have used this stuff over a period of time and my dogs suffered in the passed over prolonged use, even in small doses!
Recharge, is made for running dogs and greyhounds, nothing else is when it comes to this. :thumbs:
