Propylene Glycol reduces serum ketone body concentrations in dairy cattle, treating and preventing ketosis. Maintaining healthy levels of body fat and feed consumption during gestation, and particularly late stage gestation, are other important measures for preventing ketosis. This is a prescription-only product for when such nutritional management is inadequate.
