    Product Details

    Ketosis occurs in dairy cows as a consequence of the negative energy balance in the early postpartum period, and can result in lowered milk production, impaired fertility, and increased risk of periparturient diseases, such as displaced abomasum. Subclinical ketosis usually precedes clinical ketosis, and is much more common. Estimates suggest a median herd incidence of 40% with a range of 8 to 65%. Subclinical ketosis causes greater economic losses on a herd basis than clinical ketosis. Subclinical ketosis can be diagnosed by measuring ketone bodies present in blood, urine, or milk The Ketotest™ (Ketolac test strip) is a convenient, very effective method of detecting cows with subclinical ketosis.1,2
