Nutritional muscular dystrophy in lambs. Effect of administration selenium to pregnant ewes



Nutritional muscular dystrophy in lambs. Effect of administration selenium to pregnant ewes



Amer Jour Vet Res 22(88): 419-421



Subcutaneous injections of aqueous sodium selenite, each containing 10 mg of selenium, were given in each of the last 3 months of gestation and at lambing time to ewes maintained on a dystrophy-producing ration. No signs of toxicosis were observed. The incidence of muscular dystrophy in the lambs of these ewes was greatly reduced when compared with that in control lambs, though not entirely eliminated. Evidence suggested that in those affected lambs of selenium-treated ewes, the onset of the disease may have been delayed and its character made less severe.
