what is the total daily fluid requirement for a 22 kg dog that is currently 8% dehydrated with no ongoing losses
deficit:
22kg x 0.08 = 1.76kg
1.76kg x 1L/1kg=1.76 L x 1000ml/1L=1760mL
problem 1 cont.
Maintenance:
22kg x 55mL/kg/24hr=1210mL/24hr
problem 1 cont.
total:
1760=1210=2970mL/day
problem two:
what is the total daily fluid requirement for a 10 ppound cat that was 4% dehydrated on admission and is losing approximately 100ml of fluid through vomiting every day.
converstion:
10#x2.23/kg.=4.6kg
problem 2 cont
deficit:
4.6kg x 0.04=0.18kgx1L/1kg=0.18Lx100mL/1L=184mL
problem 2 cont
Maintenance:
4.6kg x 55mL/kg/24hr=253mL/24hr
problem 2 cont
ongoing losses:
100mL/24hr
problem 2 cont
total
184mL+253mL+100mL=537mL/day
problem 3:
do deficit and no ongoing losses
57#x1kg/2.2#=26kg (57/2.2=26)
problem 3 cont
maintenance requirement:
26kg x 55mL/kg/day=1425mL/day
problem 4
how would the patients needs in problem 3 change if she bagan to vomit and vomitted 100mL per hour for five hours after surgery?
Ongoing losses:
100mL/hr x 5hr=500mL.

total:
500mL+1425mL=1924mL
problem 5.
estimate the degree of dehydration of a cat that has been missing for one day and was found trapped inside the garden shed.
physical exam is 100% normal.
does this cat need to be in the hospital on IV fluides.
estimated dehydration:
Hx & PEx) = 4%
does not need to be on IV fluids
PO or SQ would suffice
