Pantja goats are newly recognized breed of Himalayan basin with accession no. INDIA_GOAT_2420_PANTJA_06024. An experiment, during autumn and winter seasons of 2016-17, was made to study the effect of oral administration of Pantja goat urine (10 ml, on alternate days for 30 days) on about 2 months old kids. The comparison of growth parameters (body weight, chest girth, body length), rectal temperature and immune response was made between urine administered (6 kids, treatment group) and control group (6 kids) at 0, 15, 30 and 90 day of experiment. Significant increase in body weight (P<0.05) (12.81 ± 0.26 vs. 12.18 ± 0.10 kg); chest girth (P<0.01) (56.37±0.14 vs. 55.82±0.32 cm); body length (P<0.01) (52.56 ± 0.15 vs. 51.48 ± 0.29 cm); relative body weight (P<0.05) (99.75 ± 2.49 vs. 92.01±2.21%) and relative body length (P<0.01) (39.35 ± 0.28 vs. 36.43±0.91%) of kids became evident at 90 days of experiment. The treatment group kids also showed significant (P<0.01) pronounced reaction (skin thickness) to Phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) injection (3.55 ± 0.05 vs. 2.54 ± 0.03 mm) at 12 hours, indicating that administration of urine in kids boosted their immune response. The urine administered and control group Pantja kids recorded 38.36±0.01 vs. 38.44±0.02; 38.55±0.03 vs. 38.29± 0.020C; 38.60± 0.04 vs. 38.45± 0.02; 38.75± 0.02 vs. 38.78± 0.030C indifferent rectal temperature at 0, 15, 30 and 90 day of experiment, indicating that urine intake was non-toxic to them.
