Abstract:

The effects of several Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) were determined in 200 mature backyard chickens with clinical signs of lameness. The NSAIDs, diclofenac, carprofen, ketoprofen and meloxicam with doses 0.5, 1, 2, 3 and 4 mg/kg were used in these groups, orally. Chickens were monitored on a daily basis for general condition, joint inflammation reduction and mortality. Diclofenac, carprofen and ketoprofen were associated with mortality. In contrast, there were no reported mortalities for the NSAID, meloxicam in this study. Results of the current study revealed that the meloxicam was the drug of choice with relative safety for treatment of joint inflammatory diseases in chickens.
