Description of Ketone bodies strips
Ketone bodies strips assess the blood level of ketone bodies which are a main indicator of metabolic disorders for cows reproduction. Ketose is one of the most common metabolic trouble in the early lactation for dairy and beef cattle. Ketose means high level of ketone bodies in the blood. Ketones are acids produced when the body burns some of its own fat for energy. Ketone bodies pass from blood to urine. The therapeutic goal is to restore blood sugar.
