The value of oral administration of an emulsion of calcium chloride in the prevention of relapses or parturient paresis



The value of oral administration of an emulsion of calcium chloride in the prevention of relapses or parturient paresis



Recueil de Medecine Veterinaire de l'Ecole d'Alfort 168(5): 351-353



Milk fever is one of the top diseases of economic importance for the dairyman. A satisfactory response is generally obtained by the intravenous administration of calcium salts. Unfortunately a large number of cows (15 to 40%) relapse after this treatment and need at least one more injection. The frequency of relapse can be considerably reduced by peroral supplement of calcium chloride. Calcium chloride in normal waterly solution has been shown to cause serious damages in the rumen of cows. These damages are probably the causes of difficulties in recovery. To minimize this risk, it is possible to get the calcium chloride in a water-in-oil emulsion. A study was carried out in France to prove the interest of a water-in-oil emulsion (CALOL trade-Mark, Gunnar Kjems Aps Copenhagen, Denmark) for prevention of relapses of parturient paresis as supplement to intravenous injections.
