The article presents a study which describes the treatment of Afec-Assaf ewes affected with pregnancy toxaemia with flunixin meglumine from 2005 to 2008. Pregnancy toxaemia is characterized by hypoglycemia and hyperketonaemia due to inability of the ewe to maintain an adequate energy balance in late pregnancy. Flunixin meglumine is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use to treat respiratory diseases, endotoxic shock and mastitis in cattle and equine colic.
