High Cl concentrations are most consistent with an obstruction at or distal to the pylorus. The physical examination will hopefully provide evidence as to whether this obstruction is functional or pathologic. Rumen osmolality. The rumen osmotic pressure is actively controlled by the ruminant and closely approximates serum osmotic pressure. 35 Gram stain. Rumen ﬂuid normally contains a large heterogeneous population of bacteria, which are predominantly gram negative. Lactic acidosis produces a more uniform bacterial population, which is predominantly gram positive.
Chloride concentration. The rumen ﬂuid should be centrifuged, and the supernatant submitted for determination of the chloride concentration, which is normally 10-25 mEq/L in cattle and less than 15 mEq/L in sheep. Elevated rumen chloride concentrations result from abomasal reﬂux (internal vomition), ileus, or high salt intake. High Cl concentrations are most consistent with an obstruction at or distal to the pylorus. The physical examination will hopefully provide evidence as to whether this obstruction is functional or pathologic.
