Abstract: Rabbits are highly susceptible to heat stress as they have few functional sweat glands and have difficult heat dissipation when environmental temperature is high, Studies on broiler rabbits in the semi-arid environment have demonstrated that the period from October to March is favourable for rabbits while April to September period is stressful (Naqvi et aJ., 1995). Heat ameliorative measures to alleviate heat stress are found to be essential in broiler rabbits to improve the production potential. The present study was aimed to record the blood biochemical profile in White Giant and Soviet Chinchilla rabbits subjected to different heat ameliorative measures.
