The effect of Emblica officianalis and Spirulina platensis was studied in New Zealand White rabbits. Weaned rabbits of both sex were allocated to three different feeding treatments via T1 (Control), T2 (supplemented with 2% Emblica officianalis) and T3 (supplemented with 5% Sprulina platensis) in addition to ad lib. berseem fodder. The concentrate diets formulated were iso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric. The final body weight, weight gain and average daily weight gain of rabbits in all the groups followed the same trend. While, T1 and T2 were found to have better FCR than T3 supplemented feeding treatments, there were no significant changes in the serum biochemical indices, only the serum globulin value was significantly (P<0.05) lower (2.41 vs. 3.55, 3.10 g/dl) and albumin value was found significantly higher (4.52 vs. 3.27, 3.56 g/dl) in the groups fed spirulina supplemented diets as compared to groups fed with non supplemented diets. Amla supplementation had no effect on the serum biochemistry indices.

Abstract


The effect of Emblica officianalis and Spirulina platensis was studied in New Zealand White rabbits. Weaned rabbits of both sex were allocated to three different feeding treatments via T1 (Control), T2 (supplemented with 2% Emblica officianalis) and T3 (supplemented with 5% Sprulina platensis) in addition to ad lib. berseem fodder. The concentrate diets formulated were iso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric. The final body weight, weight gain and average daily weight gain of rabbits in all the groups followed the same trend. While, T1 and T2 were found to have better FCR than T3 supplemented feeding treatments, there were no significant changes in the serum biochemical indices, only the serum globulin value was significantly (P<0.05) lower (2.41 vs. 3.55, 3.10 g/dl) and albumin value was found significantly higher (4.52 vs. 3.27, 3.56 g/dl) in the groups fed spirulina supplemented diets as compared to groups fed with non supplemented diets. Amla supplementation had no effect on the serum biochemistry indices.
