Agalactia - No Milk

(310) Agalactia describes a shortage of milk supply in an otherwise healthy lactating animal. It is relatively uncommon as a prime condition but common as a sequel to extensive oedema of the udder and mastitis. It is also seen in older sows where hormone outputs are reduced. The major cause however is associated with inadequate water supplies.
