  Objective: The aim of current study was to evaluate the therapeutic and high doses of florfenicol (FFC) on hematological values in goats. Methodology: Goats were intramuscularly induced with therapeutic (20 mg kg –1 b.wt.) and high doses (40 and 60 mg kg –1 b.wt.) of florfenicol for 3 days with 24 h interval. The blood samples were drawn at different timings from 0-120 h after drug administration and were assayed for the selected hematological parameters. Results: The therapeutic dose of FFC produced no effect on erythrocytes, hemoglobin, packed cell volume and leukocytes indices at all timing points, whereas decreased the lymphocyte count (p<0.05) at 24 h. The high dosages of FFC produced significant effect on erythrocytes, hemoglobin, packed cell volume, leukocytes and lymphocyte indices. In comparison with control, erythrocytic count and hemoglobin level (p<0.05) decreased from 48-72 h. Packed cell volume was observed to be reduced (p<0.05 and p<0.01) for 72 h. The leukocytic count (p<0.05) diminished from 24-72 h. The lymphocytic count decreased (p<0.05 and p<0.01) for 96 h. Clinically, local discomfort, reactions and pain at site of injection and some digestion disturbance were also noticed with high doses of florfenicol during experiment. Conclusion: It was concluded that both the therapeutic and high doses of florfenicol significantly affects the lymphocytes. The high doses of FFC produced anemic and immunosuppressive effects of drug.

  Medicinal plants have gained great popularity and their importance is realized world over. Psyllium (Plantago ovata) is a native plant of India. The hydrophilic mucilloid, water-soluble fiber derived from psyllium husk and seed had been used since ancient times as vital curative agent for constipation, mainly as a part of the traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Psyllium is a rich source of fiber and has numerous other therapeutic impacts such as cholesterol lowering, antidiarrhoeal, laxative, antidiabetic, energy increasing, hemorrhoid remedy, soothing inflammation and weight loss agent. Psyllium husk plays a key role in lowering serum cholesterol, so psyllium is being considered as a potential supportive agent in the therapy of hyperlipidemia. The cholesterol level is lowered in different animal models by the binding of psyllium husk with bile acids in the small intestine and thus reducing its absorption. The husk of psyllium could be used as an additive in milk replacer of the neonatal dairy calves to improve the physiological functions and enhance the performance and health status. Psyllium may also has positive impacts in growth and productive performance of different poultry species. The main aim of this review was to discuss the role of psyllium in managing the hypercholesterolemia in humans and the application of psyllium huskas a safe feed additive in poultry farming for the production of organic and low cholesterol designer egg and meat.

  Green tea is an important herb and its products are extensively used in the traditional Chinese medicinal system through various formulations. Several reports have revealed its beneficial usage and medicinal aspects for various ailments. Consumption of green tea has gained special attention and popularity in various sectors of the modern era of changing lifestyle. This review aimed to extend the current knowledge on the modes of action and beneficial applications of green tea in humans and animals for safeguarding different health issues. The nutritional, immunological, pharmacological and physiological functionalities of green tea are because of the available bioactive components like caffeine, L-theanine, polyphenols/flavonoids and others. It possesses multi-beneficial potential in treating and preventing various disorders of animals and humans, as well as promoting animal (dairy, piggery and goatry) and poultry industry. The present review provides insights on the modes of action and beneficial applications of green tea, which will be useful for nutritionists, pharmacists, physiologists, researchers, veterinarians and animal and poultry producers. Future research emphasis and promotional avenues are needed to explore its potential therapeutic applications for designing appropriate pharmaceuticals, complementary medicines and effective drugs to popularize and propagate its multidimensional health benefits.
