Effects of dietary fructose on doe weight, litter size and weight and liver weight of kits

Effects of dietary fructose on doe weight, litter size and weight and liver weight of kits

Journal of Applied Rabbit Research 10(2): 76-78

Ten New Zealand White rabbit does were assigned to each of 2 treatments. Group 1 was fed on a control diet of 18% crude protein and group 2 was fed on the control diet with 6% fructose added. Mean weight gains of the does were observed for 28 weeks, ending after the does kindled their first litter. The difference in weight gain between treatments was significant at intervals throughout the experiment, with fructose-fed rabbits showing the greater weight gains.
