The Effects of Adding Goat Milk to the Diet of Rabbits Treated with Amoxy-Clavulanic Acid on Some of Its Productive Physiological , Biochemical , and Immunological Characterstics.


This study is undertaken during the period from 12-3-2011 to 29-4-2011 to evaluate the effect of diet supplementation with goat milk on some productive (live body weight , weight gain , feed consumption and feed conversion ratio). Physiological (Haemoglobin concentration and packed cell volume), biochemical (Total protein , Albumin and globulin) and immunological (white blood cells and percent of lymphocyte cells ) traits of rabbits . A total of (32) female rabbits between 2-3months with age an average initial weight 1406.250) gms are randomly distributed into four equal groups (8) rabbits per each as follows:1-Control group (C ) : fed base diet contains (12%) protein without any addition .2-First treatment group (T1) : fed the some basa diet + 5mg amoxiclavulanic acid / kg body weight .3-Second treatment group (T2) : fed the same basa diet +5mg amoxi-clavulanic acid / kg body weight +5ml raw goat milk .4-Third treatment group (T3) : fed the same basal diet +5ml raw goat milk .The study has continued for (5) weeks .The results of the statistical analysis show that there are significant differences in body weight (P0.05) between (T3) and other treatments (1783.50, 1508.75, 1770.25 and 1852.75) gm respectively , weight gain and feed conversion ratio . Also the results reveal that there are significant differences (P0.05) in hemoglobin concentration between (T3) and each of (T1 and T2) while there are no significant differences between (T3) and control treatment . treatment (3) show a significant superior (P0.05) in total protein concentration (88.16) gm/L as compared with other treatment and it is also observed a significant difference (P0.05) between (T1) and other treatments in white blood cells .In conclusion rabbit diet supplementation with goat milk seem to improve the productive homological , and immunological traits .
