Haematological Parameters of Adult Dry, Lactating and Camel Calves in Saudi Arabia

K.A. Al-Busadah and T.E.A. Osman

Abstract:
This study was conducted to determine the normal values of haematological parameters in adult dry, lactating and camel calves. The Hb, PCV, RBC, MCV, MCH and MCHC were lowest in young camels (3-12 weeks old). The above values were generally lower in lactating females as compared to adult dry females. The TLC was highest in young camels and lowest in lactating females. The DLC revealed that the neutrophils were the most predominant cells, followed by the lymphocytes, the eosinophils, the monocytes and finally the basophiis. However, statistical analysis of the DLC showed no significant differences between the three groups, with the except of the eosinophils which were significantly lower (p<0.05) in young camels.
