Abstract

Parathyroidectomized dogs given a five per cent solution of ammonium chloride in 100-cc. doses twice daily may be kept free from tetany for long periods. Once tetany appears, and the serum calcium falls below 7 mgm. per 100 cc., ammonium chloride brings about a recovery within two hours after administration. Calcium determinations show that the calcium has risen, on the average, 2.5 mgm. or to 8.5 mgm., which is above the level at which tetany appears.
