    Per my ill doe.. should I use LRS or the SC? we do a hand-sized bubble in between her shoulder blades, right?
    thanks!

    I also wanted to ask if you think I should wait to do this until after the freeze is over?

    We only ever piggy-backed Sodium Chloride in certain cases.
    LRS or Normasol was used for re-hydration.

    About 3/4ths way down on this site is a good place to find out infor. on fluids:

    But, the below is a pretty good explaination of it's uses.
