AbstractThe aim of our study was to assess the effects of mixed basic salts on growth and liver trace metals content of rabbits infected with Fasciola hepatica. Chinchilla rabbits were experimentally infected with Fasciola hepatica and treated with triple hydroxy crystals newly synthesized (ZnxCoyCu1-x-y)4(OH) 6SO4.2H2O and (ZnxCoyMn1-x-y)4(OH) 6SO4.2H2O. Body weight gain, feed intake, feed conversion, mortality and trace metal (Zn, Mn, Co, Cu, Al) were studied on day 14th and 60th p.i. Trace metals were established by AAS. Trace metals imbalance was observed in acute and chronic fasciolosis — reduced levels of metals. Supplementation of ZnCo,Mn - salt influenced positively Mn, Zn and Co content and Zn, Co, Cu - salt increased Co, Cu and Zn levels. BWG and mortality were changed positively by the both salts. Feed intake and feed conversion were not influenced by treatment with both salts. Treatment with Zn-Co-Mn salt has more beneficial effects on BWG in the rabbits (infected or uninfected) and liver trace metal imbalance associated with acute and chronic fasciolosis than Zn-Co-Cu salt.
