The blood-gas status of seven sheep with experimentally induced heartwater during the acute and terminal
stages was investigated. Changes in blood gas included a decline in arterial oxygen tension (pO₂)
combined with a respiratory alkalosis. Although the sheep became hypoxaemic, blood-gas changes
associated with respiratory failure were not observed.
