Effect of dietary protein on zinc phosphide toxicity in albino rats (Rattus norvegicus)


Effect of dietary protein on zinc phosphide toxicity in albino rats (Rattus norvegicus)



Indian Journal of Experimental Biology 39(3): 269-271



ISSN/ISBN: 0019-5189

PMID: 11495287

Adult male and female albino rats (R. norvegicus) were administered rodenticide, zinc phosphide ranging from 4, 2, 1, 0.5, 0.25 and 0.125% in the diet containing 10(A), 17(B) and 24%(C) protein. Zinc phosphide induced 100% mortality at 4, 2, 1, 0.5% in diet A; 4 and 2% in diet B; and 4% in diet C. The results reveal influence of dietary protein in modulating the toxicity of zinc phosphide, suggesting that greater caution should be exercised while formulating its baits for effectiveness.
