The first thing to try is making the coefficients exact.

int = Rationalize[1/Sqrt[0.75*z^(0.6) + 0.25*z^3 + 0.000082*z^4] ]

Integrate[ int , z, Assumptions -> {Element[z, Reals]}]

But that does not help here.

You could maybe try re-writing the integrand as an order-20 polynomial in z^(1/5); I am not optimistic.
