In a study the blood profile of West African Dwarf (WAD) goats fed graded levels of DPW in fermented cassava peel meal based diets were evaluated. Four diets designated A, B, C. and D were formulated to contain 0%, 10%, 20%, and 30% DPW respectively and samples were analyzed for proximate compositions. The diets were offered to the WAD goats in a 4x 4 Latin square design during a 28-day feeding trial. Blood was sampled by collecting 3mls via jugular veino-puncture at the end of each phase of the feeding trial. The samples were used to evaluate both Haematology and Serum biochemistry of the goats. Result shows that the Dry matter (%) and crude protein of the diets were 90.27, 19.71%; 90.22, 19.81%, 89.54; 20.47% and 89.37; 22.4% respectively for A, B, C and D while the metabolisable energy were l .59MJ/kgDM, l.54MJ/kgDM, l.49MJ/kgDM. and 1.51 MJ/kgDM. Average feed intakes (kg/d) were statically (P< 0.05) significantly for the four diets. Diets A, B, C, and D recorded 0.87 (kg/d, 0.84, 0.88 and 1.25kg/dl respectively. The PCV, WBC, MCV, MCHC, were statically (P< 0.05) infulenced by the dietary treatments while Hb, RBC, and MCH, were unaffected statically (P> 0.05). Diets A, B, C, and D recorded 28.00%, 39.00%, 27.00% and 33.00% for PCV respectively. The WBC (x10/l) values were 10.00(x 10/l), 11.38(x 10/l), 10.10( 10°/l) and 6.40(x 10/l). Also, MCV, (FI) values were 27.83Fl, 32.02F1, 27.22FI and 30.39F1 while MCHC (g/dl) values obtained were 20.00g/dl, 22.05g/dl, 28. l 5g/dl, and 23.94g/dl for diets A, B, C, and D respectively. Apart from the blood urea (mg/di) values, all the other serum biochemical components varied statically (P< 0.05). Total protein (g/dl) values were; 4.20g/dl, 5. 10g/dl, 4.58g/dl, 4.39g/dl, and Globulin values were; 2.40g/dl, 3.19g/dl, 2.44g/dl and 4.25g/dl respectively for diets A, B, C, and D. The creatinine (mg/di) values ranged from 0.92-1.27mg/dl, while the glucose 46.00-73.33mg/dl. Also, the total bilirubin (mg/di) and dried bilirubin (mg/dl) values ranged from 0.46-0.55mg/dl and 0.28mg/dl respectively. It was obsevered from this result that the addition of DPW in FCP based diets did not have any negative effect on both the blood profiles evaluated and the health of the WAD goats; hence these feed resources should be harnessed for efficient goat production.
