Oxidative stress and its biomarkers are considered emerging fields in ruminant medicine. Data on this emerging field in dexamethasone-treated goats infected with Brucella melitensis is limited. This study aimed at evaluating biomarkers of oxidative stress in dexamethasone-treated non-pregnant Boer goats experimentally infected with B. melitensis. Eighteen healthy, non-pregnant goats were divided into three groups: A, B, and C of six animals each. Group A was treated with dexamethasone (2 mg/kg… CONTINUE READING
