The records of 14 cases of bovine hypokalaemia observed between 1983 and 1996 were reviewed. The most common history included a protracted, often infectious, disease. All age groups were represented. Although previously reported as a risk factor, isoflupredone acetate had not been administered to five of the cases. The following clinical signs were recorded(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine the etiology and types of vagal indigestion (VI) occurring after right displacement of the abomasum or abomasal volvulus (RDA/AV), and the prognosis for each type. Data of cows presented for RDA/AV from a retrospective (n = 288) and a prospective (n = 132) study were used. Vagal indigestion occurred in 39 and(More)
This article describes hypokalemia syndrome. Lactating dairy cows seem to be at the highest risk, but younger animals may also develop the disease. At present, except for animals treated with repeated isoflupredone acetate administration, the exact determinants causing hypokalemia syndrome remain uncertain. Affected animals are anorexic, weak to recumbent,(More)
The objectives of this study were to evaluate a method of determining the internal and external potassium balances in dairy cows and to determine daily and lactation period-associated variations of these balances. Ingested potassium, milk potassium concentration (LK) and potassium urinary fractional clearance (FeK) defined the potassium external balance.(More)
Neurological examination of a sheep that had acute onset of recumbency and mental depression indicated a diffuse symmetrical thalamocortical lesion. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis suggested a degenerative central nervous system disease. Thiamin administration resulted in partial and temporary improvement. Brain histological lesions were typical of focal(More)
