Sometimes you need emergency electrolytes to replenish lost fluids. You can use these on both humans and animals.
Times when supplemental electrolytes are needed:
During sickness — fever, diarrhea, vomiting
During heavy work or exercise
During heat — heat exhaustion, sun stroke
This is not a remedy to take the place of a medical or veterinarian call, but for you to have on hand in an emergency.
1 litre (quart) of potable water
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. sea salt, Celtic salt or Himalayan salt
2 tbsp. orange juice, lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. maple syrup or sugar
Mix ingredients together and put in glass bottle for fluid replenishment. May be fed to baby animals or children, too.
Keep this recipe on hand. You never know when you may need it. I keep a copy on my fridge because when I have an emergency I won’t have time to look for it.
