Abstract:

The parturient paresis is a production disease in high yielding lactating cattle during its first 24-72 hrs of parturition or during last few days of pregnancy in sheep/goat, characterized by acute deficiency of ionized calcium in the blood resulting in progressive neuromuscular dysfunction with flaccid paralysis and death in 2-3 days. A 2-year old pregnant doe was presented with a history and signs of sternal recumbency, curvature and twisting of neck, depression and anorexia to the Veterinary Clinical Complex (VCC), College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. No abnormality was detected on physical examination and urine analysis. Abdomen x-ray revealed fully developed skeleton of four feti. Serum analysis showed a low levels of calcium (6.4 mg/dl) giving a confirmation for parturient paresis (pre parturient hypocalcemia). The doe was treated with calcium gluconate, oral calcium powder and nervine tonics which showed a complete recovery after 5 days.
