BIOCHEMICAL AND HAEMATOLOGICAL EFFECT OF THREE MEDICINAL PLANTS EXTRACT USED THERAPEUTICALLY ON BROILER CHICKENS AS ANTICOCCIDIAL AND GROWTH PROMOTER
Olorunsogbon, B. F.

ABSTRACT
This study was conducted to investigate the effect of three different medicinal plants extract (Aristolochia ringens, Allium sativum, and Ocimum gratissimum) on firm hematological and serum biochemistry of broiler chicken infected with coccidiosis. Two hundred and fifty Day old arbor-acre breed broiler birds were shared into three treatments with three replicates per dosages of the extracts and two controls. The plants extract administered at different dosages (20ml, 30ml, and 40ml). The results showed that there was no significant alteration in PCV and RBCs in the broiler chicken administered with the three different medicinal plants extract the HBC, MCV likewise, MCHC and MCH showed that there was no significant difference (P>0.05) in the extract administered. There is a slight alteration in the number of lymphocyte, neutrophil, basophil, and eosinophil of the broiler. The biochemical resultshowed that the Total Protein (TP) to be slightly different (P<0.05) in Aristolochia ringens,and no significantly different (P>0.05) among other plants extract, there is not significantly different (P>0.05) in Albumin, Globulin, Aspartate aminotransferase and Alanine aminotransferase throughout the treatments.
