A study was conducted to investigate the effect of crude oil contaminated feed on serums enzyme and some biochemical parameters of male chinchilla rabbits. The crude oil was incorporated at the graded levels of 0, 4, 8, 12, and 16 ml per kg feed in T1(control) , TII , TIII TIV and TV respectively. A total of thirty (30) male chinchilla rabbits, aged 12 weeks and weighing 950gms were used. They were randomly assigned into 5 groups (TI ,TII , TIII, TIV and TV)  in a Randomized Complete Design (RCD), six replicates, each of the replicate having one rabbit.  At the end of the feeding trial, blood samples were collected from three rabbits from each treatment group for cortisol, total protein, cholesterol and enzymological analysis. Results obtained showed that the inclusion of crude oil had significant (P< 0.05) effect on cortisol, total protein, cholesterol and enzymes (Serum Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase (SGOT), Serum Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase (SGPT) and Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP).

Key words: Serum enzymes, biochemical parameters and male rabbits.
