GARCIA-VAZQUEZ, Luisa et al. Evaluation of productive parameters and carcass yield of rabbits, that consumed epazote (Chenopodium ambrosioides) infusion. Abanico vet [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp.44-47. ISSN 2448-6132.

Rabbit breeding is an activity that is growing worldwide in recent times, due to its easy handling, the speed with which they reproduce and the possibility of generating animals for sale or self-consumption. One of the main problems facing this activity is that there are no pharmacological options for the treatment of diseases in these animals, for that reason, alternative strategies have been sought to protect and/or prevent against these diseases, one of the options is the use of medicinal plants. Here we evaluate the effect of epazote infusion on rabbit fattening, animal production, and carcass yield. The results showed that the use of 10 g of epazote administered as an infusion in rabbit fattening increased the productive parameters and allowed no mortality during the 4 weeks of treatment, so it would be important to evaluate its effect on the quality of meat and meat products derived from it.
