Metronidazole acts by preventing anaerobic microbial cell’s production of hydrogen ions, while oxytetracycline, synthesis tetracycline, has only broad-spectrum bacteriostatic action. These active substances are used in compounded drug formulations for treatment of several forms of ornamental birds’ enteropathies. As a consequence, the present study aims to assess the hematological and biochemical profile of ornamental birds under Enteroguard Madministration, a pharmaceutical product based on metronidazole and oxytetracycline. The investigations consisted of hematological and biochemical testing of 3 groups of healthy ornamental hens, yellow Orpington breed, aged between 1 and 3 years. The evolution of investigated parameters showed insignificant differences between different lots of tested birds, that have shown a haematological- biochemical profile corresponding to a good level of health and welfare throughout the observation period, pre- and post-treatment.
