A Comparative Effect of Clove Essential Oil with Multi-strain Probiotic and Antibiotic on Blood Biochemical Profile in Broiler. Asian Journal of Dairy and Food Research. 40(4): 456-460. doi: 10.18805/ajdfr.DR-1648.
Background: An experiment was conducted to compare the blood biochemical profile of broiler chicken feeding three different types of feed additives. 
Methods: 180 day old broilers chicks of Ven Cobb 400 strain were distributed randomly into 4 groups (T0, T1, T2 and T3) having 45 chicks in each group on the basis of their body weight. Each group divided into 3 replicates of 15 chicks in each. Rations are computed as per BIS (2007) to meet the nutrient requirement and other three groups (T1, T2 and T3) were offered the same standard ration of the control group but supplemented with zinc bacitracin @ 55 mg/kg (T1), probiotic @ 150 mg/kg (T2) and clove oil @ 400 ppm (T3). 
Result: The result of the experiment showed significant difference (p<0.05) in the level of Glucose in T3 group whereas, protein, albumin, globulin, A:G ratio, ALT and AST did not differ significantly (p>0.05). Probiotic @ 150 mg/kg and clove oil @ 400 ppm supplemented groups showed significant (p<0.05) better cholesterol level compared to control and zinc bacitracin @ 55 mg/kg.
