The knowledge of body condition score and biochemical profile are useful in diagnosing and prevention of various pathological and metabolic disorders and importance for animal health which can adversely affect on reproductive performance of cows. Healthy parturient cows (n=10) and 10 parturient cows with milk fever and no signs of other diseases were included in the present study at AL-Hamza quarter farms at a period lasted from November 2012 to March 2013,This study was conducted to estimate the though body condition score , biochemical profile in all animals of study such minerals ( Calcium, magnesium and Phosphors) some enzymes ( ALP , GPT and GOT) and some of metabolic indicators as ( Glucose , Cholestrol , Triglycerids and Creatinine phosphate ) . the results revealed that the values of body condition score in milk fever group showed no significant differences compared with normal calving group. biochemical profile which include Creatinine , triglyseide , uric acid , cholestrol and GPT also showed nonsignificant differences between normal groups . while Ca, P, Mg, ALP, urea, bilirubin , glucose , GOT in milk fever group showed significant differences if compared with normal group.
