  1. The activity of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), creatine kinase (CK), and serum concentrations of glucose (Gluc), total protein (TP), albumin (ALB), triglycerides (TG), cholesterol (Chol), urea (Urea), creatinine (Crea) in calves either supplemented with selenitetriglycerides at two doses 0.5 or 1.0 mg/kg or not supplemented (control) on day 0 (before supplementation) and days 1–14 after supplementation. Different letters (A, B) represent the significant difference (P < 0.05) in concentration between groups in each sampling date
