Abstract: Alterations of serum constituents in three different varieties of duck namely Pati, Khaki Campbell and Nageswari from different parts of the state were evaluated in healthy and duck plague outbreak. A significant reduction (P<0.05) in protein and albumin level was observed in all the varieties of ducks under study during disease than that of the healthy ducks. A significant rise (P<0.05) in the level of globulin was recorded during duck plague outbreak in Pati and Nageswari breed of ducks. An increased level of glucose (162.35±9.45 mg/ dl) was recorded in Pati duck group during disease outbreak which differed significantly (P<0.05) from the healthy group (145.69±10.12 mg/dl). The healthy and the diseased group of Khaki Campbell showed glucose level of (159.78±9.23 mg/dl) and (172.95±8.21 mg/dl) respectively. The level of glucose in healthy and diseased group of Nageshwari variety of duck was recorded 171.62±7.63 and 185.11±5.6 mg/dl respectively. A significant (P<0.05) rise in blood urea nitrogen level of diseased Pati duck (1.95±0.15 mg/ 100 ml) was recorded as compared to the healthy group of Pati duck (1.27±0.06 mg/100 ml).
