Description of Ketone bodies strips
Ketone bodies strips assess the blood ketone bodies level which are a main indicator of metabolic disorders for reproduction in cows. Ketosis is one of the most common metabolic disorders in the early lactation stage for both dairy and beef cattle. Ketosis means high levels 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 the blood to the urine. The therapeutic goal is to restore blood sugar. Ketone bodies strips are to be used with the Optium handheld Reader. Sold in packs of 50 or 100 strips.
