When hemoglobinuria was rst diagnosed, the poisoned sheep were randomly distributed into two groups: 4 untreated and 8 tetratiomolybdate-treated.
Blood samples and clinical evaluation were performed daily, from the onset of poisoning until the 30th day.
Analysis of packed cell volume, plasma free hemoglobin, and blood gas were made.
Elevated heart rates and rectal temperature, and reduced respiratory and ruminal movement rates were recorded in the intoxicated group.
The poisoned sheep developed mild alkalosis caused by bicarbonate retention, while a short-periodic increase of pCO2 occurred to compensate the ongoing alkalosis.
Elevated degree of anemia was directly propor...
