Abstract:
The study was undertaken to study the comparison of physiological parameters in Healthy and Sub-clinical Ketosis affected cows before and after treatment with propylene glycol in and around Bengaluru. Recently calved cows (within 0 – 2 months) were subjected to blood BHBA estimation and cases with blood BHBA level between the range of 1400 µmol/L to 2500 µmol/L were selected as positive for subclinical ketosis. Whereas, blood BHBA level less than 1000 µmol/L were selected as negative for subclinical ketosis and these animals were selected as control group.
Animal found positive for subclinical ketosis were treated with Propylene glycol 200 ml per day orally for 5 days. There was no significant difference in the values of temperature, pulse and respiratory rates of subclinical ketosis animals when compared to healthy group before and after treatment and there was a significant decrease in Rumeno-reticular motility of subclinical ketosis cows compared with healthy group before treatment. Following therapy non-significant increase in rumeno-reticular motility was observed. The blood BHBA in subclinical ketosis animals were significantly (P≤ 0.05) higher compared to the healthy animals before treatment. After treatment the blood BHBA significantly (P≤ 0.05) decreased compared to the values of before treatment. When healthy animals were compared with SCK animals there was non-significant decrease in milk yield per day before treatment and after treatment milk yield was significantly increased which could be due to increase in the blood glucose, reduction in BHBA and also due to the improvement in the overall metabolic status of the animal.
