Clinical and subclinical ketoses are important metabolic diseases in dairy cattle during early lactation and are associated with losses in milk production and several other periparturient diseases. Limited information is available regarding the prevalence of clinical and subclinical ketoses in dairy herds in Iran. The objectives of this study were (1) to detect serum β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and glucose concentrations during pre- and postparturition periods, (2) to investigate the correlation… CONTINUE READING
