The present research aims to study the features of gastric blood supply in Californian rabbits using Bio- Mos feed supplement. For experiments, baby Californian rabbits separated from doe rabbits were selected and divided into two groups. Rabbits of the control group received basic diet, i.e. granular compound feed; the farm recipe was developed and created at a Tyumen milling plant. Young animals (from 2 months of age) of the experimental group received Bio-Mos feed additive (2 g per kg of granulated feed) by Alltech recommended for increasing the overall resistance, productivity and livability. The data obtained allows concluding that the main source for the formation and growth of blood vessels (vascularization) of a rabbit‟s stomach is the branches of celiac artery: left gastric artery and branches of hepatic and splenic arteries; these vessels were of larger diameter in animals of the experimental group. In addition, the size of lymphatic vessels and nodes also changed, since lymph node weight in the experimental group exceeded the same parameter in the control group by 10.3%. Therefore, Bio- Mos feed additive has an effect on vascular system morphology activating compensatory-adaptive mechanisms which provide more complete drainage of circulatory system.
