Advantages of testing ketones

What are the advantages of testing ketones in a blood sample?


The measurement of ß-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB), the predominant ketone body in blood, is the gold standard diagnostic test for detection of subclinical ketosis.
 
The determination of BHB with a device especially calibrated for cows, allows a diagnosis even prior to the development of clinical ketosis with visible signs of disease.  As even animals who suffer from subclinical ketosis show already a decrease in performance and have an increased risk for other diseases due to the impaired immune system, the detection and the treatment of ketosis in the subclinical state is of highest importance!
 
Disease prevention is much better than treatment of obvious ill cows!
