Present investigation was carried out to study the effect of feeding fenvelerate (75 or 100 ppm) (FEN) with or without a performance enhancer Zigbir (500 ppm), on some of the haematobiochemical parameters in commercial broilers. For various haematobiochemical estimates the blood samples were collected from the wing vein of the birds at 5 and 7 weeks of age. The hemoglobin concentration and the PCV of the birds were significantly (P< 0.01) reduced by the dietary levels of FEN (75 or 100 ppm). The total leukocyte counts at 5 weeks of age were significantly (P< 0.01) increased in the birds fed with 100 ppm of FEN. However the total erythrocyte counts and the various erythrocyte indices (MCV, MCH) were not significantly affected by the FEN (75 or 100 ppm). The various enzymes in the serum like SGOT, SGPT & alkaline phosphatase showed a significant (P< 0.01) increase in their mean values in the groups fed with FEN (75 or 100 ppm). However, the supplementation of Zigbir at a level of 500 ppm with the FEN showed a slight beneficial effect in reducing the mean values of these enzymes. A significant reduction in serum albumen, serum globulin and a significant increase in A: G ratios have been observed in the birds fed with FEN 100 ppm. The BUN, serum sodium and serum potassium were not significantly influenced by the dietary FEN either at 75 or 100 ppm.
