Effect of Ruminal Juice, Vitamins, and Minerals Mixture Supplementation on Calves Affected with Ruminal Acidosis
Keywords:Ruminal acidosis , Ruminal juice Vitamins, Minerals
This study was planned to evaluate the efficacy of ruminal juice, vitamins, and minerals mixture supplementation on the improvement of ruminal acidosis in calves in a comparison with the group treated with the anti-acid only. In this direction, a total of 30 calves were used in this study; 10 were clinically healthy and assigned as a control (G1), and 20 were affected with ruminal acidosis. The latter 20 calves were further equally grouped into 2 subgroups (G2, and G3). Group 2 was treated with a ruminal anti-acid, while G3 was treated by the administration of a ruminal juice supplemented with a vitamins and minerals mixture beside the anti-acid. The result showed a significant decrease in WBCs, Hb, PCV, ALT, AST, and serum lactate. Furthermore, significant improvement in TAC, BHBA, ruminal protozoal count, and ruminal pH in calves treated with ruminal juice supplemented with vitamins and minerals more than in the group treated with the anti-acid only. It is concluded that the use of ruminal juice supplemented with vitamins, and minerals besides the anti-acid had a better impact on clinically affected calves with acute ruminal acidosis.
