Abstract


Enteric diseases frequently occur in rabbit around weaning leading to extensive use of antibiotic in rabbit breading. In this context, breeders and consumers ask for alternative strategies that should improve the health of animals. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of a natural alternative consisting of mannanoligosaccharides (Bio–Mos) and a live yeast culture (Yea Sacc) on rabbit’s growth and post–weaning performance. A total of 60 rabbits have been randomly divided into 4 treatment groups. All the 60 rabbits have been weaned at 35 days of age and kept in wire fattening cages: 6 rabbits/cage, and 18 per group. They have been observed for seven weeks. Rabbits of the control group were fed a basal diet. Rabbits of the 3rd experimental group were feed the same diet as the control group supplemented with 1) Bio Mos 0.1%, 2) Yea Sacc 0.1%, 3) Bio Mos 0.1% + Yea Sacc 0.1%.
