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
