Abstract

Background & Aim:Increasing the tendency in families for taking care of pets makes   people pay more attention to their disease especially the common ones. In   recent years the tendency to use of herbal drugs has increased in animals.   Herbal drugs are plants that one or some of their members have effective. We   supposed that the Elaeagnus angustifolia(oleaster)   powder has the plantagel. Therefore, the aim of this study is to compare the   oleaster powder herbal compounds and plantagel as anti-diarrhea in dogs. Experimental: This study was done on 12 male dogs collar (3   quadri groups) with the similar approximate weight and similar age in   veterinary clinic of Islamic azad university of Shahrekord branch. Sana   flower herbal syrup was used to cause the diarrhea in all 3 groups. They   received 15 mg/kg every 12 hours and all groups were suffering from diarrhea.   Three groups were studied including testifier group without remedy, the first   care group that received 5 mg/kg of oleaster and the second care group that   received the plantagel powder every day and during this period of time the   whole index related to diarrhea were exanimate whether on aspect of clinical   or mortal factors.
Results: By looking at the mortal indices, it was observed   that the percentage of hematocrit in plantagel and oleaster groups in   comparison with testifier group in recovery time was significantly different   (P>0.05), that shows the recovery of mortal hematocrit index. Also the   percentage of neutrophils in oleastergroup with testifier and plantagel   groups was observed a meaningful difference which is reducethat is a sample   of meaningful increase in comparison with other groups (P>0.05). Also by   sampling from excrement, the numbers of the bacteria showed a meaningful   difference in oleaster and plantagel group in comparison with testifier group   (P>0.05).  Recommended applications/ industries: The use of oleaster powder as dose and time dependent causes reducing the duration of diarrhea because of the prehensile materials in oleaster.
