  • Abstract:

    Undoubted cases of Domsiekte have been produced by suddenly cutting the ration of good conditioned heavily pregnant ewes. An identical condition has been set up in non-pregnant ewes but a much longer period on the poor diet was necessary than in the pregnant ewes. Details of the diets, loss of weight of the animal, clinical symptoms, chemical analysis of the blood and urine, pathological changes and blood changes are recorded. There is no doubt that the Domsiekte produced is identical with the "Pregnancy Disease" reported from other countries.
