Reply To: Fluid Calculations

Andy Bell

Hi Gail,

I used to use this calculation when I worked at Vetsnow in Glasgow. I think it is just a more accurate calculation if I remember correctly. I can check with a colleague.. I remember thinking the calculation was complicated, but there’s actually a really simple way of doing it like bodyweight x bodyweight x something else.

I think as long as you continue to use the same method of calculation then either way is fine, but alternating between could result in over/underloading of fluids..
