Abstract:
Seventy two weaned Syrian hamsters of either sex were randomly assigned to six treatments in single cages (290mm X 220mm X 140mm) in a closed room where the temperature and relative humidity was maintained 24±50C and 60±15%, respectively during the trial of 56 days. The experiment consisted of six treatments. The concentrate mixture of all the groups was formulated using wheat, fish meal, ground nut cake, mineral mixture and common salt. Feed provided to each treatment was same. Treatment T1, T3 and T5were provided with pure water only. While treatment group T2, T4 and T6were provided with green tea extract only. Green tea extract was prepared by dipping green tea bag (1.3g) in 130 ml boiling water so that effectively it formed 1 percent w/v solution. Hemato-biochemical parameters in terms of Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Lipid Peroxide improved significantly in the treatment groups in which GTE was provided (T2, T4 and T6). It is inferred from the results that T2, T4 and T6 treatment groups (in which green tea was provided) showed better growth profile in comparison to the rest of the treatment groups (T1, T3 and T5). It is also inferred that rice Huskas a bedding material proved to be the best as compared to saw dust and sand.
