Abstract:

Oxidative stress plays vital role in the pathogenesis of almost every clinical disease condition. So these days treatment regimen of various diseases are being targeted with the adjunct antioxidant therapy. Many studies have proved that oxidative stress is also involved in gastroenteritis. That’s why this study was planned to see the combined effect of antibiotics and antioxidants (vitamin C and N-acetylcysteine) therapy on gastroenteritic dogs which included thirty six affected dogs. Affected dogs were further divided into six therapeutic groups on the basis of different combinations of antibiotics and antioxidants to evaluate comparative effects of different antibiotics and antioxidants. Affected dogs in all the groups showed decreased oxidative stress indices and trace elements than healthy control dogs. Earliest and better recovery was observed in the groups which were administered with both the antioxidants along with antibiotics. Combined therapy proved to be better than alone antibiotic therapy in the recovery of gastroenteritis in dogs in this study.
