Efficiency of use of feed additives of plant origin «Phytovit» for the dogs

Keywords: plant extracts; feed additive «Phytovit»; prophylaxis of diseases; biochemical indices of blood; dogs


The application of the feed additives for nutrition correction, as well as the prophylaxis of any problems with health of the animals, is becoming more actual among veterinary professionals and owners of the animals. The effectiveness of the application of the feed additives «Phytovit» was established by analysis of the clinical state of the animals, clinical and biochemical indices of the dog blood. The animals were active throughout the observation period (4 weeks), they responded well to sound and light irritants; respiratory disorders, disorders in urination and defecation were not observed. In the dogs, beginning with the second week of the experiment, was found an improvement in appetite, general condition of skin and woolen cover (disappearance of dandruff – after a week of application, appearance of gloss and decrease of wool loss) relative to control. It was determined, that on the 14th day of the experiment in the blood of the dogs of all experimental groups, the content of total hemoglobin increased an average by 8.5 % relative to the control level of the index. It was found, that the content of total protein, total calcium and inorganic phosphorus increased more markedly since 14 day of the experiment. It was established, that the level of serum enzymatic activity of Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) in the serum of blood of the animals in all experimental groups during the experiment gradually increased relative to the control, on the average in 1.2 (I); 1.3 (II); 1.3 (III); 1.4 (IV) and 1.4 (V) times (P ≤ 0.05). It is established, that feed additives in the recommended doses are not only harmless but also effective, because in accordance with the results of clinical and biochemical investigations  of the blood of the dogs have been registered improvements in the assimilation of nutrients of feed, in particular – protein, macronutrients, fat-soluble vitamins, indicating their reduction of metabolic reactions in their organism.
