EFFICACY OF GENTAMICIN AFTER INTRA YOLK ADMINISTRATION IN EXPERIMENTALLY INDUCED OMPHALITIS IN BROILER CHICKS

Abstract

A study was conducted to observe the effect of intrayolk injection of gentamicin on experimentally induced omphalitis in broiler chicks. Escherichia coli was injected into yolk sac to induce omphalitis and treatment was done by intrayolk injection of gentamicin. Results showed that mortality decreased and feed intake increased after treatment. Intrayolk injection of antibiotic is suggested as an alternative to the oral administration for the treatment of omphalitis in chicks.
