Abstract

The objective of this study was to use human held ketone meter for the estimation of ?-hydroxybutyrate (ketone body) for the diagnosis of sub-clinical ketosis in goat. A total of 210 samples from pregnant and lactating doe in Guwahati, Assam and nearby area were collected in aseptic condition from the Jugular Vein. Goats having blood ketone level more than 0.4 mmol/l and glucose level less than 30 mg/dl were considered positive for sub-clinical ketosis. Total 24 goats were diagnosed sub-clinical ketotic.
