-1 in 4 lactating Nubian goats butirylcholinesterase values was 0.0310.008 U mL-1 and in four Saanen goats 0.0360.008 U mL-1. When 10 mg kg-1 of Fenthion was applied topically in the dorsal lumbar area, it was observed that serum ChE plummeted presenting a decrease of 64.8% during the first 3 to six days post application 64.5%.
