Default Home-made Pedialyte Recipe

As you may have seen from the other thread, Pupper has had diahrrea. I want help replenish and rebalance her electrolytes. Was just on a website that said the artificial sugars in Pedialyte are not the best, and suggested the home-made one with sugar and salt.
Found this recipe online. This replaces salt but not potassium, I think? Has anyone tried a recipe for this or have just stuck to store bought products?

Boil 1 cup water w/ 1/8 tsp. salt
Add 3 tsp. sugar
Let cool

Thanks

You can make homestead gatorade with sea salt, lemon juice and water.

Why are you giving pedialyte? Have you taken her to the vet yet? I didn't read your other thread. If she no longer has diarrhea then I don't think anything extra is really necessary, just water and her food.
