Milk fever, post parturient hypocalcaemia or parturient paresis is a disease, usually seen in dairy cows, characterized by reduced blood calcium levels. Low blood calcium levels lead to decreased muscle function throughout the body, causing general weakness, loss of appetite, and eventually heart failure. Low phosphorus levels are often seen in cows with milk fever. Phosphorus has a variety of important biological functions that makes it essential for animal health and well-being. It is a major component of bone as well as a buffer contributing to acid-base balance.
Phosphorus is necessary for generation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), without which many physiologic processes could not occur. A significant increase in serum calcium can be obtained very quickly after oral administration.
Agrical Oral is effective in the prevention and treatment of milk fever in dairy cows and other ruminants.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
For oral administration directly in the mouth. Shake well before use.
- Cattle : 500 ml 24 hours before calving.
When a cow is already giving a lot of milk, start treatment earlier. When necessary, give a second dose of 500 ml after calving. Administration may be repeated every 12 hours. In case the animal has been treated intravenously with a sterile calcium containing product, administer Agrical Oral in addition to intravenous treatment as follows: 500 ml Agrical Oral 8 – 12 hours after infusion, to be succeeded by a second dose of 500 ml 12 hours later.
If no improvement is noted after treatment, please contact your veterinarian.
