Ketosis

Ketosis is a metabolic disorder in dairy cows that occurs mainly at the beginning of lactation as the result of a negative energy balance. The cows become sluggish, have little appetite, have hard faecal waste and produce less milk. The breath of cows with ketosis / prolonged milk fever smells of acetone (one of the ketones). Propylene glycol is ofter administered for the treatment of cows with ketosis, and this increases the cow’s glucose and energy levels.

Animals with a negative energy balance run a greater risk of developing ketosis / prolonged milk fever. Ketosis in dairy cows has a negative effect on the fertility and productivity of the lactating  cow. The risk of ketosis can be reduced by limiting the negative energy balance after calving.
