  • Esraa Taher Muslim Department of Public Health, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of AL-Qadisiyah, Iraq


This research was conducted in the Animal House of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine / University of Qadisiyah for the period from 1/10/2016 to 1/11/2016. The aim of this research is to find out the effect of using Camel Colostrum extract on some blood parameters in albino rats. Use of the colostrum extract from camels after delivery in the first three postpartum periods (1 hour), postpartum (6 hours) and postpartum (12 hours). In this study, 30 rats of males and females, ranging from 150-200 g, were randomly divided into five groups each group contains 6 rats, All groups were infected with E. coli except (C) group. After that, 3 animals were killed from each group after five days of infection and treated as follows: Control group(C) The standard and distilled water were given only,( zero) left untreated, (group 1) given 0.2 ml of colostrum extract was removed after 1 hour of delivery (group 6) given 0.2 mL of colostrum extracted After 6 hours of delivery, (group 12), which was given 0.2 ml of colostrum extract taken 12 hours after birth, The results of the experiment showed a significant effect (p<0.05) for the treatment with the presence of significant differences between the groups and the results showed that the superiority of the group (1) on the other groups, followed by the group(6) after 30 days of the experiment in improving the parameters of the doll due to the high proportion of antibodies in this groups.
