Rebound OES chicken flavored by Virbac Animal Health is a highly palatable, ready-to-use oral electrolyte and fluid replacer that is designed to be given free-choice and rapidly absorbed. Rebound OES was formulated by veterinarians and nutritionists to help fight dehydration associated with gastrointestinal distress, surgical procedures, and physical exertion.
Helps rehydrate dogs and cats suffering from minor dehydration and keeps active dogs hydrated. Rebound OES is highly palatable and encourages fluid consumption even in sick and debilitated animals. Rebound OES also contains an amino acid – Taurine. Taurine is an antioxidant that is important for cardiac function, the brain, nervous system and visual pathways. Taurine also serves as a conjugator of bile acids.

Must have for Ferrets by Pickledferret from West Texas10/23/2012
I keep this on hand year round for ferrets - you can give it to them just as a treat added to pumpkin soup but it really comes in to play if you have one fall ill. Post surgery, GI issues, poor appetite; you can give it to them plain or add to baby food to make a slurry that is accepted by the most finicky eaters. Plus - you can keep it in the fridge for up to 7 days instead of having to throw out so much like you do with the pedialyte.
