Twenty four Murrah buffalo calves of about six months age were randomly divided into four groups of six calves each on the basis of body weight (BW) in a completely randomized design (CRD). Group I is control (C), Group-II was supplemented with multistrain probiotic containing 7 bacterial strains and 2 yeast strains (2×109cfu/gm) at 5gm/calf/day (T1). Group-III was supplemented with prebiotic Mannonoligosaccharide + inulin at 5gm/calf/day (T2) and Group-IV was supplemented with synbiotic containing multistrain probiotic at 2.5gm and 2.5gms of prebiotic Mannonoligosaccharide + inulin per calf/day (T3) for a period of 90 days. The results showed no significant difference in haematological and serum biochemical parameters among the treatment and control groups. However, from 60th day onwards, significantly (P<0.05) lower levels of serum cholesterol was observed in T1, T2 and T3 groups compared to the control. In conclusion, the dietary supplementation of the above said probiotic, prebiotic and synbiotics have no effect on haematological and serum biochemical values in in buffalo calves.
