Flunixin meglumine, an anti-in ammatory drug if administered during luteal phase of estrous cycle following embryo transfer may be benecial in improving conception due to decreased PGFM and increased progesterone concentration around maternal recognition of pregnancy. In the present study Blood biochemical parameters changes were studied after using this drug on embryo recipient crossbred cows. There was no signicant difference (p>0.05) in protein, glucose, cholesterol and creatinine serum level but there was slight decrease in protein level while creatinine level increased in treated group. Serum urea concentration differ signicantly (p<0.05) between the groups after treatment. Hence, it may be concluded that unixin meglumine administration did not have any adverse impact on biochemical prole.

Key Words: Flunixin Meglumine; Embryo recipient; Biochemical parameter.
