Abstract: Classical Swine Fever (CSF) is a highly contagious disease of swine. So vaccination against Swine Fever is an utmost necessity. The aim of this study was to see the effect in the serum biochemistry following vaccination against classical swine fever (CSF) with lapinized swine fever vaccine. A group of twelve healthy Hampshire piglets of two months of age were selected and vaccinated against swine fever. The peripheral blood samples were collected before the vaccination i.e. 0 day and at post-vaccination days 30th, 60th and 90th day respectively. The different serum biochemical constituents and enzymes were estimated using standard methods. It has been found that there was a significant increase in the serum biochemicals (total protein, globulin, urea, creatinine, uric acid) along with the activities of serum enzymes (serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase, serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase and lactate dehydrogenase) on the successive days of post-vaccination. However, serum glucose, albumin, calcium, phosphorus and serum alkaline phosphatase enzyme were not significant on the different days of post-vaccination.
