S.K. Singh



Abstract


Pregnancy Toxaemia (PT) is a metabolic disease occurring in the later part of pregnancy commonly in ewes bearing twins or triplets. The disorders of glucose homeostasis appears to play an important role in the pathogenesis of pregnancy toxaemia (McClymont and Setchell, 1955). The purpose of the present work was to assess the ability of pregnant ewes to maintain glucose homeostasis.
