    Intoxication as well as infectious and metabolic diseases resulting in liver and kidney damage is the major causes of losses in poultry species. While there are no specific drugs for reversal of pathophysiology of these organs, certain herbs such as garlic have been shown to improve livability of livestock and poultry. Its probable potential at enhancing the functionality of these organs in the face of injuries/insults by intoxication was investigated. Harco cockerels subgroup supplemented with 0.25% garlic-meal and administered a single dose of 300 mg/kg acetaminophen orally at 8 week-old (G1; n=25) and subgroup without acetaminophen (G2; n=25), those not supplemented and without acetaminophen (NG2; n=25) and those not initially supplemented but administered acetaminophen and later supplemented (NG1g; n=20) had higher Newcastle disease vaccinal antibody titers (8.0 ± 0.25, 7.5..
