The aim of this study was to utilize the lactulose/mannitol test for assessment of intestinal permeability (IP) in preruminant calves. IP was increased experimentally by administration of Indomethacin. Both sugar markers were determined simultaneously assilyl-derivates in 5 h urinary production using the gas liquid chromatography technique. The index of IP was determined as the ratio between urinary recovery (%) lactulose and D-mannitol. The IP index in control calves was 0.2421. Results of this studyshow that ratio of lactulose to D-mannitol in urine reflected the treatment by the highest dose of Indomethacin and that the test may be used for determination of IP in preruminant calves.
