Periparturient period is especially critical for health and subsequent productivity of buffaloes. The present study was undertaken to assess the degree of oxidative stress in Mehsana buffaloes during periparturient period. The results of the present study revealed that the antioxidant vitamins viz. vitamin C, vitamin A and b carotene was significantly (plevels of vitamin C, vitamin A and b-carotene were found to be significantly (p day of parturition, suggesting more utilization of these vitamins for maintaining homeostasis in the absence of oxidative stress.
