Figure showing extrapolated plasma total calcium concentration data for multiparous cows (n=8) with parturient paresis and for healthy cows (n=19). The onset of parturient paresis was set to hour 0 for affected cows. Cows with parturient paresis were treated with a single 500 mL IV dose of 26% calcium borogluconate.
