and Rhizopus spp.
They are considered to be among the most dangerous mycotoxins.
Aflatoxicosis caused by aflatoxin (AF) B1 and related toxins represent one of the most serious diseases of rabbits and other animal species.
Rabbits are considered of the most sensitive animals to aflatoxicosis.
Ingestion of AFs by rabbits showed many effects including reduction of feed intake, poor efficiency of feed conversion and feed efficiency, poor growth, malabsorption of various nutrients, decreased tissues integrity, increased susceptibility to infection, vaccine and drug failure and increased sensitivity to temperature extremes.
Great pathological changes in most body organs are induced by AFs ingestion.
Such changes are liver and kidney dysfunctions and genetic damage (carci...
