Influence of advanced pregnancy, parturition and early lactation on the electrolyte concentrations in plasma of sheep, with special regard to paresis before lambing



Influence of advanced pregnancy, parturition and early lactation on the electrolyte concentrations in plasma of sheep, with special regard to paresis before lambing



Parktische Tierarzt 61(6): 482...489



Serum inorganic phosphate, Mg, Na, Cl and K values were assayed during the final weeks of gestation in 73 healthy ewes (51 carrying twins or triplets and 22 carrying a single fetus) and also during the first 9 days after parturition. Serum Ca values of ewes carrying twins or triplets were significantly reduced before parturition, but did not fall further at parturition or at the onset of lactation.
