Abstract

A doe was presented with history of advanced pregnancy, head pressing, circling, inappetance, torticolis, lateral deviation of neck, grinding of teeth, salivation since two days. Clinical examination revealed tachycardia, tachypenia, opisthotonus and pale conjunctival mucous membrane. Ultrasonography revealed two viable foetuses. Blood was collected and analysed for serum (AST, ALT, CRT, BUN, GGT, total protein, albumin, BHBA, calcium and glucose) which revealed hyperketonaemia (6.2 mmol/L), hypoglycaemia (33.24 mg/dL) and mild hypocalcaemia (6.4 mg/dL). Urine sample was collected and analysis revealed positive for ketone bodies. The doe was successfully treated with 25% Dextrose i/v and intramuscular calcium and B-complex. Owner was advised to feed cracked corn (till kidding) and Gluconeogenic precursor (five days) orally. An uneventful recovery was observed on seventh day of treatment.
