Type-I diabetes mellitus in a bull. Academic Article uri icon


  • Although metabolic disorders are a frequent concern in cattle, they are not commonly recognized in bulls. The combination of hyperglycemia, acetonemia, ketonuria, and glycosuria in a bull was highly suggestive of diabetes mellitus. This uncommon diagnosis was confirmed by results of intravenous glucose tolerance testing. Results of the test and serum insulin values were further able to classify the disease in this bull as type-I diabetes mellitus.
