Author(s): Dr. Pavani Veldi, Dr. Radhika Pappula, Dr. Pawar Purushotham, Dr. Karra Yashaswini and Dr. Aruna Maramulla
Abstract:
Poultry industry is facing a huge challenge to reduce the economic losses due to gout particularly when it affects poultry. Uric acid is produced in the liver and end product of nitrogen metabolism in birds. Significantly high serum uric acid level (hyperuricemia) in a super saturated state may get deposited in kidney or joints or visceral organs. Function of kidneys restore by way of providing vitamin A supplementation, change of feed formulations, use of toxin binders and agents which could regulate renal physiology i.e. nephroprotective agents. The use of xanthine oxidase inhibitors viz. allopurinol and febuxostat is increasingly gaining importance in poultry gout management.
