Experiments on the cause of hypomagnesaemic tetany in calves

Experiments on the cause of hypomagnesaemic tetany in calves

Vet. Rec, 71: 256-260

Calves fed on milk from which a large proportion of the magnesium had been removed became magnesium-deficient, as was indicated by a fall of serum Mg from just over 2 mg. per 100 ml. in calves 1 week old to about 1 mg. at 10 weeks. Blood cholinesterase values, estimated from the seventh week, were not related to either serum Mg values or to clinical signs of Mg deficiency.
