The effect of “Remivital” on plasma amino acid composition in dairy cows with ketosis
Keywords: cows, ketosis, treatment, agent “Remivital”, amino acids
AbstractAim. To investigate plasma amino acid composition in dairy cows after ketosis conventional (oral administra- tion of propylene glycol, intravenous injection of glucose and insulin) and proposed treatment (oral administra- tion of propylene glycol, intravenous injection of “Remivital”). Methods. Study was performed on high yield- ing dairy cows with clinical ketosis during their 2 nd to 4 th lactation with milk yield above 8000 L per previous lactation. Content of free amino acids was determined in plasma before and after treatment using amino acid analyzer. Results. Lowering of the level of ketogenic amino acids was revealed after conducted treatment as well as increase in the level of glycogenic and branched amino acids. Signifi cant lowering of the level of meth- ylhistidine gives evidence of decreased catabolism of contractile proteins. Conclusions. Proposed treatment regimen has proven to be superior, since signifi cantly higher level of ornithine and lower level of citrulline were revealed after administration of conventional regimen, which gives evidence of problems in disposal of ammonia and lactate. Moreover, in case of administration of traditional scheme, the concentration of markers of catabolism of contractile proteins was still high, in contrast with such in animals, which were administered proposed regimen, and high concentration of isoleucine contributes to aggravation of ketoacidosis.
