BACKGROUND Several factors may influence the concentration of serum globulins in healthy cows and thereby affect clinical interpretation; however, few studies have addressed sources of variation in globulin values. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare colorimetry-based total serum globulin values with electrophoretically-determined serum(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between the number of transferable embryos (TE) and various blood chemistry parameters as a reflection of the metabolic state of cows after superovulatory treatment. Forty-nine Holstein cows were subjected to superovulatory treatment for commercial embryo production. At the time of embryo(More)
BACKGROUND Hypophosphatemia is a condition that affects feed intake and milk production in dairy cows, and, to assess it, a precise biological parameter is needed. Plasma inorganic phosphate (Pi) can be used as a potential indicator of bioavailability of feed phosphorus in dairy cows. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of(More)
Pulmonary complications following thoracic surgery are common and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In particular, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) can occur postoperatively or after trauma. This syndrome, when complicated by multisystem organ failure, often leads to a poor outcome. This article describes the etiology and(More)
