A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of supplementation of commercial and formulated mineral mixture on haemato-biochemical profile of goats. Twenty healthy goats were selected as Control (T1) and did not receive any mineral supplementation. Forty goats showing deficiency of minerals were divided into two groups and supplemented with commercial (T2) and formulated mineral mixture (T3). The haemato-biochemical parameters were analysed at 0-, 30-, 60- and 90-day post supplementation of mineral mixture. Mineral supplementation significantly increased Hb, PCV and TEC values (P<0.01) and decreased TLC values in both the treatment groups, while, status of lymphocytes, eosinophils, monocytes and basophils remained unaffected. Total protein, albumin, A:G ratio, blood glucose, ALP concentrations increased significantly (P<0.01), however, globulin, ALT, AST, BUN, urea and creatinine remained unaffected in both the groups. The results indicated an improvement in haemato-biochemical parameters with better recovery in T3 group. It can be concluded that supplementation of formulated mineral mixture is inevitable for goats to maintain the haemato-biochemical parameters.
