Adequate blood calcium concentrations are vital for the normal function of mammals. Mechanisms for maintaining normal blood calcium function adequately most of the time; however, occasionally they fail and calcium homeostasis is compromised.

This disease occurs at the time of parturition and is unique to adult dairy animals. The disease results from the… CONTINUE READING
