The study was designed to evaluate the effect of combination of vitamin E with selenium (Se) and vitamin C injections on serum glucose concentration in Magra rams. Twenty one Magra rams were randomly divided in three groups. The 1st group (n=7, C) was administered injection of normal saline 1ml SC once in a week as a placebo and was considered as a control. The rams of group 2nd (n=7, VES) were given injections of selenium and vitamin E (1.5 mg sodium selenite and tocopherol 50mg/ml) 1ml SC per animal once in a week. The rams of group 3rd (n=7) were given vitamin C (250mg sodium ascorbete/ml), 8 ml SC per animal on alternate days. All the rams received the treatments for 45 days. The overall mean serum glucose concentration (mg/dL) was 52.59±0.62, 61.18±0.91 and 57.69±1.12 in group C, VES and VC, respectively which was significantly (P<0.05) higher in group VES followed by VC than group C. The results of this experiment inferred that injections of vitamin E with Se and vitamin C during breeding season improved the level of serum glucose in Magra rams of arid region of Rajasthan.
