Comparative efficacy evaluation of polyherbal liver tonics as a co-therapy in clinical helminthiasis of Cattle
40 cattle irrespective of sex, age and breed were screened coprologically and found moderately positive for naturally acquired helminthes (mean EPG = 1050 ± 112.02 to 1225 ± 165.78). Cattle were randomly assigned to 5 groups (n=8). Treatment Group T0 animals were treated with Albidol @7.5mg/Kg B.wt. Treatment Group T1, T2, T3, and T4, were treated with Albidol + AV/SYL/12@50 ml per day; Albidol + Yakrifit Liquid@50ml per day; Albidol + Liver tonic Brand A @50ml per day; and Albidol + Liver tonic Brand B @15ml per day, respectively, bid for 5 days in cattle. Blood samples were collected for haemato-biochemical study. A significant decrease (P<0.05) in mean EPG was observed in T4 (21 ± 8.42), T2 (23 ± 13.33), T3 (24 ±11.09), and T1 (25 ± 11.09) in comparison to T0 (125 ± 184.76) on 14th day. The hematological profile, serum total protein, and A:G ratio were significantly (P<0.05) improved in all liver tonic supplemented groups. While biochemical parameters in liver tonic supplemented groups decreased (P<0.05) after 5th and 14th day of treatment. In conclusion cattle treated with co-therapy of herbal liver tonic products along with anthelmintic drug recovered more rapidly as compared to T0 group.
