Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern therapeutic management requires rapid and correct diagnosis and a combination of scientific achievements and practical effects. Mineral deficiencies are still an existing problem in animal husbandry and use, which are often overlooked by scientists and practitioners. Scientific research that allows early and reliable diagnosis as well as appropriate preventive action offers the opportunity to improve animal welfare and health as well as productivity. The diagnosis of deficiencies is hampered because they increasingly run in a subclinical form for a long time without characteristic clinical signs. The subclinical or atypical forms of these deficiencies, which go untreated for a long time, cause serious disturbances of intramammary homeostasis in animals and large economic losses for breeders.

For this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome for submission. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • evaluation of the usefulness of hematological tests in diagnosis and therapy;
  • evaluation of energy, protein, hormonal, and metabolism under conditions of micromineral deficiencies;
  • evaluation of the usefulness of indicator parameters of micronutrient deficiencies, as well as the search for new biochemical indicators describing changes in homeostasis occurring in the course of micronutrient deficiency;
  • novel methods for the early diagnosis, effective treatment and prevention of mineral deficiencies in animals.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
