Improvement of the antioxidant status of camels and dairy cows by using selenium supplementation and fodder rich in selenium

Dr Rabiha SeboussiDr Rabiha Seboussi from the Higher Colleges of Technology, Health Sciences, Veterinary Faculty, Al-Ain, UAE, will give a presentation about the improvement of the antioxidant status of camels and dairy cows by using selenium supplementation and fodder rich in selenium at the ISANH Middle East World Congress organized in April 12-14, 2016.

According to Dr Seboussi selenium (Se) is an essential trace element in camels and dairy cows diet in which deficiency affects animal health and performances.  In the regions where soils are characterized by low selenium concentrations to meet the animal requirements, deficient and marginal intakes are widespread and have been associated to various health disorders in human and animals. Many cases of degenerative myocarditis were reported in camels, thus, all concentrates given to camels are enriched in selenium under different forms.
The aim of this presentation is to highlight the recent research results and their implications to enhance the antioxidant status of camels and dairy cows by selenium supplementation either in inorganic compound, organic compound, or enriched fodder.
