Animals sluggish , depressed , dull coat , disheveled . Reduced rumen pH content (up to 4.5-6.0 ) and urine (less than 8.0). Dietary feeding normalization diet composition ( reduction or elimination of concentrates , in a diet of soft , vitamin hay , chopped root vegetables ) , washing cavity scar sick animal by gavage followed by him in the rumen contents from healthy animals , giving antiseptics ( 1 solution of potassium permanganate 1000 , furatsilin , ihtiol etc.) , antibiotics ( chlortetracycline 14 mg / day per animal , etc.), sodium hydrogen carbonate 10-15 g daily for 7 days contribute to prevention and treatment of disease.
For prevention ruminita animals for fattening must have constant access to loose salt and water. rumen acidosis Lactic acidosis rumen digestion , grain intoxication, » wheat » disease — a widespread disease of sheep and goats and other ruminants , characterized by increased production of lactic acid in the rumen and the displacement of the acid — alkaline balance in the body. This is due to eating large amounts of food containing a lot of easily digestible carbohydrates (barley, rye, oats, sugar beets, potatoes , watermelons , etc.) and not enough roughage . In small ruminants acidosis symptoms are very diverse.
Initially marked loss of appetite, weak movement scar , sometimes completely absent , the body temperature falls below normal, but after 4-5 days due to inflammation in the stomach may increase . Patients animals marked tachycardia (rapid heart rate ) , diarrhea , hypo-and anuria (absence of urination) .
