This study was aimed at finding out if paracetamol influences the pharmacokinetics of ceftriaxone in healthy and salmonella thyphimurium infected Sokoto red goats. In a randomised three-way study, 15 healthy male goats weighing 10-13 kg were divided into three groups of five goats each and each group got either a single intramuscular dose of 1 g ceftriaxone only, 1 g ceftriaxone co-administered with 300 mg paracetamol or 1 g ceftriaxone co-administered with 300 mg paracetamol plus inoculation with Salmonella thyphimurium. Non compartmental Pharmacokinetic parameters were measured in plasma samples by microbiological assay. There was a statistically significant (p
