Dietary Effects of Lactobacillus acidophilus Probiotic on the Haematological Parameters, Total Serum Proteins and Lipids of Lahore Pigeon (Columba livia)

R. Anantharajan, K. Athiskumar


Abstract: The probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus was given to Lahore pigeons to study the changes in the haematological parameters, total serum proteins and lipids in their blood. This probiotic has increased the PCV, RBCs, haemoglobins, TLCs, basophils, eosinophils, monocytes, lymphocytes, total serum proteins and serum lipids but has decreased the heterophils count in the pigeons. Production of more number of leukocytes is the direct indication of the enhancement of innate immunity that is the first hand mechanism to protect pigeons from various pathogens. This probiotic improved the level of serum protein and lipids that are good indicators of layer quality. So, it will be a good nutritional supplement to pigeons.
