The study was undertaken in the Animal House of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Basra, to explore the effect of feeding on skim milk and skim milk enriched by many type prebiotics FOS, XOS, and RS on the blood parameters and heart weights, liver and spleen in rats. Thirty Albino rats with weights ranging from 200-170 g were randomly distributed on the biomass weight to five treatments of six replicates rats. The rats fed on a standard diet. The first treatment rats dosing 4ml distilled water; second treatment rats dosing 4ml skim milk; third treatment rats dosing 4ml skim milk with 1.5 g / kg FOS; fourth treatment rats dosing 4ml skim milk with 1.5 g / kg RS and the Fifth treatment T5 rats dosing skim milk with 1.5g/kg XOS for three months. The results of the two months showed a significant decrease in P

The experiment was conducted for 112 days in 20 Aquariums with dimension of 80×30×30 cm and a capacity of 70 liters. A hundred and eighty (180) common carp fingerlings (Cyprinus carpio L.) were distributed randomly on seven treatments with three replicates per treatment except control (2 replicates). Each replicate had 9 fingerlings/ aquarium with an average body weight of 10.37 ± 0.14 g/ fish.
Fish were fed seven experimental diets which were mixed locally with a protein content of 31.79- 32.24% and a metabolizable energy of 1428.194-1437.919 kcal./kg feed. Probiotic and prebiotic were added as 5, 10 and 15 gm/ Kg feed to the experimental diets except for the control diet. The results indicated no significant differences (P>0.05)among fish fed the experimental diets in final body weight, weight gain, daily weight gain, relative growth rate, feed conversion ratio, feed efficiency ratio, protein efficiency ratio and the amount of protein consumed by fish throughout the study period. However the specific growth rates of the experimental diets were significantly different (P<0.05) compared to the control diet.

This study aimed to study the effect of diet supplementation with probiotic, prebiotic and synbiotic on histology and intestinal of White Leghorn (WL) laying hens. A locally prepared probiotic were used each one gram of this probiotic contain at least 1010 Colony Forming Units of Bifidobacterium, L.acidophilus bacteria and 108(CFU) of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and Aspergillus niger fungal respectivally. The prebiotic used in this study were consist a non starch oligosaccharide of S.cerevisiae yeast after crashing of cell wall .The synbiotic used in this study were prepared by mixed an equael amount from probiotic (Iraqi probiotic) and prebiotic. A total of 180 WL laying hens, 16 weeks old were randomly allocated into four treatment groups . Hens in T1 group were fed a standerd laying diet and used as control group. Hen in T2,T3 and T4 were fed diet supplemented with 5 Kg/ton of probiotic, prebiotic and synbiotic respectively. The experiment was conducted in poultry farm at Agriculture College– University of Baghdad for the period from 27th May 2005 to first of Jully 2006.
The data for the present study showed that feed supplementation with probiotic, prebiotic and synbiotic were significantly (P<0.01) increased villi length and cryps depth of the duodenum region as compared with the control group. The microbiological study data also revealed feed supplementation with probiotic, prebiotic and symbiotic were significantly (P<0.01) increased Lactobacilli and decresced Coliform bacteria count in crop, jujinum and cecum of laying hens.
