Abstract: A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding Probiotics on the incidence and severity of diarrhoea in piglets under different feeding treatments viz., T0 (fed conventional creep feed), T1 (fed 5% milk powder supplemented creep feed), T2 (fed probiotics supplemented creep feed added at manufacturer's recommended rate) and T3 (fed creep feed supplemented with 5% milk powder and probiotics as per manufacturer's recommendation). The overall incidence rate (%) of piglet diarrhoea was highest in T0 group and then gradually decreased in T1, T2 and T3 group. The average values of diarrhoea scores indicated that the severity of diarrhoea was promptly by the supplementation of Probiotics in T2 and T3 groups and the piglets fully recovered by 14th day followed by T1 on 29th day while the control T0 group suffered up to 45th day and then recovered. The occurrence and severity of diarrhoea was reduced in the experiment indicating the effectiveness of the used Probiotics.
