Ketosis is a common disease of adult cattle. It typically occurs in dairy cows in early lactation and is most consistently characterized by hyporexia and reduced milk production. Rarely, it occurs in cattle in late gestation, at which time it resembles pregnancy toxemia of ewes.
When large amounts of body fat are utilised as an energy source to support production, fat is sometimes mobilised faster than the liver can properly metabolise it. If this situation occurs, ketone production exceeds ketone utilisation by the cow, and ketosis results.
Prevention depends on adequate feeding and management practices.
The body condition of the dairy cow is important at calving. Cows should be on a rising plane of nutrition up to calving with the aim to calve in good condition.
Occasionally, very high-producing cows will be susceptible to ketosis every year. In these cases a preventive drenching program of propylene glycol immediately after calving may avert ketosis in individual problem cows.
