1. 1. Heat-stressed animals have less sodium water in their milk due to the increased endogenous aldosterone secretion. 2. 2. Injections of exogenous aldosterone to these animals caused increased milk-water content. The same was found when injecting ADH. 3. 3. The flow of polyvalent ions, especially phosphate, to the milk could result in the additional water content. 4. 4. Spironolactone negated the endogenous and exogenous aldosterone causing a decline in milk sodium and polyvalent ions. 5. 5. It is concluded that large amounts of aldosterone and ADH, as in the heat exposed and dehydrated camel, would be the cause of increased milk-water.
