Effect of dexamethasone on growth rate, feed conversion ratio and body composition in guinea pigs


Effect of dexamethasone on growth rate, feed conversion ratio and body composition in guinea pigs



Iranian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 32(3): 487-494



ISSN/ISBN: 1017-5652

To study the effect of different doses of dexamethasone on growth rate, feed conversion ratio and body composition, a completely random designed experiment was conducted using 60 male guineapigs with initial weight of 350+or-50 g and age of about two months. Four levels of dexamethasone: zero (group D0, as control), 1.5 (group D1.5), 3.0 (group D3.0) and 4.5 (group D4.5)mg/kg body weight were treated.
