Serum Biochemical Indices Of Rabbit Doe Fed Biscuit Diets Containing Moringa Oleifera Lamm Based On Urban Organic Waste
AbstrakThe aim of this study was to determine the serum indices of rabbit doe fed biscuit diets containing Moringa oleifera lamm based on urban organic waste. A total of 25 rabbits doe were used divided into 5 groups based on body weight with 5 treatments in each group. T0 was the control diet while T2, T4, T6, and T8 received additional 2%, 4%, 6%, and 8% moringa leaf meal, respectively. The treatment was given during pregnancy until the kit was 21 days old. Blood samples collected from rabbits does on the last day of study and evaluated for serum biochemical indices, data obtained were analysed statistically. The variables observed were cholesterol, glucose, total protein, albumin, globulin, creatinine, and urea. The results showed that cholesterol, total protein and albumin in the blood serum of rabbit doe were significantly different (P<0.05) while glucose, globulin, creatinine, and urea were similar (P>0.05) between the groups. Giving Moringa leaf meal up to 8% in biscuit diet was able to reduce cholesterol content in the blood from 75.10 mg/dl to 58.20 mg/dl. Total protein in blood serum increased from 6.94 g/dl to 8.24 g/dl. This increase in total protein seems to be influenced by a significant increase in albumin from 4.08 g/dl to 5.58 g/dl. The other variables still have values in the normal level such as controls.
