Abstract


In this paper we presented metabolic profile of sows from one industrial type farm. We monitored the following parameters: phosphorus, calcium, bilirubin, total protein, glucose, magnesium, and urea in blood. We found 7 sows with phosphorus level in normal range, 4 sows with hypophosphatemia and 9 with hyperphosphatemia. In 5 sows calcium values ranged within the physiological values, in 13 sows is moved above the normal values and in 2 ranged below the permissible value. Bilirubin was in all 20 sows above the permitted value. Total proteins were in 6 sows in normal range, in 13 were bellow and in 1 above upper physiological limit. State of hypoglycemia was founded in 15 sows and in 5 sows glucose levels were in physiological limits. Magnesium values were above the physiological values in 9 sows, in 6 bellow limits and in 5 was within tolerable limits. Values of urea are normal in 18 sows and above physiological limit in 2 sows.
