Acidosis (ketosis) in cattle.
Pregnancy toxaemia (“sleepy sickness” in sheep). These hypoglycemic conditions respond to the raised blood sugar levels stimulated by dosing with propylene glycol. A supportive tonic. Helps support debilitated and convalescent animals when appetite is poor.
Propylene glycol converts to propionate and assists to raise blood glucose levels. Ketone levels reduce and general metabolic function is stimulated.
Choline assists liver function by increasing phospholipid metabolism and mobilizing fats.
Iodine is provided as ketotic cows have often been observed to have low serum iodine levels.
Cobalt ensures Vitamin B12 production is maintained for carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism.
