New Poultry Electrolyte

 New Poultry Electrolyte Designed for the Backyard Poultry Raiser

Chilton, WI — Milk Products announces the addition of a poultry electrolyte, Sav-A-Chick™ Electrolyte and Vitamin Supplement, to the Sav-A-Caf® product line. Unlike most poultry and chicken electrolyte products on the market today that treat hundreds of birds, Sav-A-Chick™ is ideal for casual poultry raisers with 1 – 10 birds.

chick“Interest is growing all over the country, in both suburban and urban areas, to raise poultry as pets and for their eggs,” commented Dave Kuehnel, President of Milk Products. “We saw an opportunity to cater to this market by developing a poultry electrolyte specifically for the backyard poultry raiser.”

Electrolytes are important to have on hand in situations that cause stress to a bird, such as hot weather, sickness, or a change in environment. In these situations a bird can become dehydrated, affecting its ability to digest food.

Sav-A-Chick™ Electrolyte and Vitamin Supplement is formulated specifically for poultry. Each ¼ oz. packet of electrolyte powder mixes with 1 gallon of water. The single-use packets are pre-measured to ensure accurate dosage, as well as product freshness. Poultry owners not only have the convenience of a pre-measured electrolyte, but can also be assured their birds are receiving the proper amount of electrolytes and vitamins.

Available as a 3-packet strip, Sav-A-Chick™ Electrolyte and Vitamin Supplement is now available for purchase. Please visit or call 800-657-0793 for more information.
