Water movements across the rumen wall were studied during rehydration in four fistulated sheep. The animals were dehydrated for 48 h which increased total plasma protein, plasma osmolality, plasma Na+, arginine vasopressin and plasma renin activity. Two series of experiments were performed: Expt I with no food available during rehydration, and Expt II where the animals were fed hay. On the rehydration day, a fluid marker (cobalt-EDTA) was administered into the rumen. To avoid water outflow from… CONTINUE READING
