CHARACTERISATION OF THE PHYSIOLOGICAL STATUS OF HARE HERDS

The populational decline of hares that come from cynegetic funds in Romania requires a thorough study of physiological status to characterize the environmental impact on herds.
Modern methods for physiological assessing provides the opportunity for a haematological and biochemical screening of organisms studied. Determinations were made on blood counts coming from healthy animals and also over some individuals suffering from coccidiosis collected from cynegetic funds.
Biochemical analysis from blood tissue have completed the physiological status, allowing an accurate interpretation of the data obtained.
The results allowed us to assess the metabolic profile of wild rabbits reared on various cynegetic areas in Romania highlighting the possible nutritional imbalances and metabolic ones or different pathologies.
