Present study was conducted at MRCSG Shuhama to study the effect of concentrate and probiotics supplementation on the performance of doesduring periparturient period. Twenty four pregnant healthy Boar x local cross does in the last month of gestation (day 120) were selected randomly and allotted to 4 treatment groups (T1, T2, T3 and T4) of 6 animals each. The does were maintained under stall feeding conditions and offered a daily ration consisting of oats hay @ 1.2 kg/head/day and commercial pelleted feed @ 577.5 g/head/day during periparturient period (one month pre-partum to one month post-partum). Does in treatment groups T1 were offered normal daily ration without supplementation. In T2 group were offered normal ration with concentrate @ 150 gram /head/day, T3 group were offered normal ratio with concentrate @ 150 gram/head/day and probiotic @ 2.5 gram/head/day and in T4 groups were offered normal ratio with concentrate 150g + probiotic @ 4 gram/head/day. Probiotic = Saccharomyces cerevisiae x1010 CFU. There was a significantly (p<0.05) higher plasma glucose (mg/dl) and protein (g/dl) concentration in T2, T3 and T4 as compared to T1 (control) treatment group at kidding and after kidding however there was non-significant difference between T2, T3 and T4 treatment group. At end of trail highest plasma glucose concentration was observed in group T3 as 58.50±1.14 mg/dl and lowest in T1(control) as 52.00±2.64 mg/dl. At the end of trail highest plasma protein was observed in T4 as 6.11±0.38 g/dl and lowest in T1 group as 4.00±0.28 g/dl. Also, there was a non-significant difference in fortnightly plasma triglyceride and cholesterol among the different treatment groups during before kidding, at kidding and after kidding.
