This study was performed to investigate the effected of experimental work of intestinal surgery for
removal caecum of rabbits on alanine amiotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase(AST), gamma
glutamyletransferase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), acid phosphotase (ACP), amylase, lipase,
catalase (CAT), ceratine phosphokinase (CPK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and cortisol hormone.
Two groups of thirteen healthy female New Zland rabbits were used. The first one contained 15 rabbits
and kept as control group. The second contain also 15 rabbits subjected to surgery for removal of caecum
of rabbits. Blood sample were collected at 3, 6 and 9 days post-operative. The obtained result showed
that the increase in serum ALT, AST, GGT, ALP, ACP, amylase, lipase, CAT, CPK, LDH and cortisol
hormone were significant increase in experimental group compared with control group. From this result
it could be concluded that the biochemical parameter affected with intestinal surgery for removal of
rabbit’s caecum
