Sodicarb Vet Injection 8.4% is injected intravenously. In cattle and horses,
200 to 300 ml of 8.4% solution may be given undiluted by rapid infusion using
a needle and syringe. Sodicarb Vet Injection 8.4% solution is often added to
other intravenous fluids for the less urgent forms of metabolic acidosis. The
amount of bicarbonate to be given over a 4 to 8 hour period is approximately
2 to 5 mEq per kg of body weight (2-5 ml/kg body weight) depending upon
the severity of the acidosis and clinical condition of the animal.
