Abstract:
Background and Objectives: Measurement of blood gas analysis and acid-base balance may be a useful tool for detecting the effect of the exercises on metabolic and respiratory conditions of the animals. This study aimed to investigate the effect of racing on blood gas components and hemato-biochemical variables in racing camels (Camelus dromedarius) with highlighting the correlation between the assessed blood gas components and selected biochemical variables. Materials and Methods: Ten female racing camels aged 3-5 years and weighing 250-300 kg scheduled for a 7 km race were investigated in the present study. Blood samples were collected at 24 h pre-racing (T0), 1 h post-racing (T1) and 24 h post-racing (T2). Results: A significant decrease (p<0.05) in venous bicarbonate (HCO3) concentration, total carbon dioxide (TCO2), oxygen saturation (%) and base excess (BE) levels were observed in camels after racing. Racing in camels exhibited a significant increase (p<0.05) in the serum levels of urea, glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase and cortisol. On the other hand, a significant decrease (p<0.05) in iron (Fe), glucose, phosphorus (P) and copper (Cu) sera levels was determined in camels after racing. A strong positive correlations were observed between either blood pH or TCO2 and glucose, between partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) and calcium (Ca) and Cu, between HCO3 and glucose and Fe, between BE and glucose, Fe and P and between O2 (%) saturation and Ca. Conclusion: The obtained results revealed that healthy camels subjected to racing are suffered from a condition of metabolic acidosis as well as alterations in hemato-biochemical parameters. Besides, the attained findings helped for the first time to discover the correlation between blood gas components and different biochemical variables in healthy camels.
