Abstract:

The present study was conducted to determine prevalence of ketosis in cows in and around Bikaner and clinical manifestations in ketotic cows. Based upon test results 40 cows were diagnosed as ketotic. The overall prevalence of ketosis amongst post-parturient cows was found to be 11.42 per cent, age-wise prevalence of ketosis was highest in 8-9 years of age (35 per cent) and lowest in >9 (5 per cent) years of age, parity-wise prevalence of ketosis was highest in 3rd and 4th parity (25 per cent) and lowest in 1st and 6th (5 per cent), stage of lactation-wise prevalence of ketosis was highest in 1-2 i.e 45% and lowest in 4-5 month i.e 2.5% after parturition and month-wise prevalence of ketosis was highest in January (25 per cent) and lowest in April (13 percent). The clinical examination of these animals revealed non significant elevation in temperature and pulse rate but mild decrease in respiration rate, but there was highly significant increase (P<0.01) in ruminal movement (per two min.) and milk yield (lt. Per day) in treated cows in all groups (A, B and C).
