The heightened metabolism and substantial exertion of the pigeon in flight result in numerous waste products. In the elimination of urea, uric and phosphoric acid, lactic and carbonic acid, mainly sodium ions are consumed and elimination is therefore dependent on the quantity of these ions available to the pigeon. Water loss is also appreciable during flight.
For all these reasons it is important to give pigeons Natural Electrolit on their return from a race.
This energy-drink effectively compensates water and electrolyte depletion and progressively restores an acid-base equilibrium. It also represents an immediate energy gain (glucose) which markedly shortens the recovery period.
Diseases such as adenovirosis and paramyxovirosis cause diarrhoea resulting in a major loss of minerals and water loss. Natural Electrolit prevents dehydration caused by diarrhoea and accelerates the recovery from a disease.
On the return of a race: Mix Natural Electrolit in the drinking water and leave it at their disposal until after the evening meal.
Day of basketing: The pigeons that take part in long-distance and very long distance races are under way for several days and nights. It is essential that these pigeons are basketed with sufficient reserves of electrolytes (body minerals). This is why we advise to mix Natural Electrolit to the drinking water on the day of basketing.
In case of severe, watery diarrhoea: Administer Natural Electrolit until the droppings return to normal again.
1 bag of Electrolit per litre of drinking water.
1 measure of Electrolit per litre of drinking water.
Natural Electrolit can also be mixed with Natural Tea and Naturaline.
