Diagnostic stripes for subclinical and clinical ketosis detection in milk samples. The test detects the level of betahydroxybutyric acid, which is the main ketone body released during ketosis. Ketosis develops during the time of negative energy balance of the cow. The disease negatively influences the milk production, milk quality, fertility and immune response of the animals, what leads to a huge economic loss.  The critical period for ketosis is the transition period of the cow. Therefore, it is immensely important to detect the ketone bodies presence in milk in order to stop the negative effect of ketosis on the farm economy.
