OBSERVATIONS CONCERNING HAEMATOLOGICAL PROFILE IN GOAT

Stela Zamfirescu, Irina Topoleanu, Dorina Nadolu

Abstract

This study had analysed the hematological profile of goats (adult and youg females and males) and the influence of sex on the hematological values whith MS4/5 Hematological Anlyser (Melet Schloesing, France). On the red blood cell (RBC) counts of goats, sex had any influence. The hemoglobin (Hb) and hematocrit (Ht) values were smaller in both sexes (8.180.27 in females and 8,20,17 in males) as well as the packed cell volume (PCV) values (14,370,36 in females and 15,51,6 in males). Mean of the hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) was higher in the female than male goats (43,651,01 in male and 44,091,21 in female). Leukocytes mean was high in both sexes, which may be interpreted as a potential infection. Lymphocytes represented more than 50% of the total white blood cell (WBC) counts in male and females goats. Monocyte and basophile mean was not influenced by sex. But, in the case of eosinophil average, the males had smaller values than females and both were smaller than normal. Mean of neutrophils was lower than normal. The haematologic profile on the youg goats of 3 month age, male and female, was the lower values with 8-10 % in comparison with the adult goats and bucks. Since the animals are apparently healthy, any value may be regarded as possible infection or metabolic and nutritional disorder.

Key words: goat, hematological profile, hemoglobin, eritrocyte, leukocyte.

Rezumat

In acest articol s-a analizat profilul hematologic la unele categorii de caprine, (capre si tapi, tineret caprin) folosind Analizorul Hematologic (Melet Schloesing, France). Asupre numarului de celule rosii (RBC) sexul nu are nici o influienta. Valorile pentru hemoglobina (Hb), hematocrit (Ht) au fost scazute la ambele sexe (8.180.27 la capre si 8,20,17 la tapi) ca si acelea pentru volumul celular (PCV);(14,370,36 la capre si 15,51,6 la tapi). Media concentratiei de hemoglobina (MCHC)a fost mai mare la capre decat la tapi (43,651,01 la tapi si 44,091,21 la capre). Media leucocitelor a fost mare la ambele sexe, ceea ce poate indica o potentiala infectie subclinica a indivizilor studiati. Limfocitele reprezinta mai mult de 50 %, din totalul celulelor albe numarate la capre si tapi. Monocitele si bazifilele nu sunt influientate de sex. In unele cazuri, media valorilor pentru eozinifile au fost mai mici la tapi decat la capre, in timp ce bazifilele nu prezinta diferente. Media neutrofilelor a fost mai scazuta decat valorile de referinta considerate normale. Profilul hematologic la tineretul caprin, mascul si femel, in varsta de 3 luni a prezentat valori mai mici cu 8-10 % fata de animalele adulte de acelasi sex. Deoarece toate animalele studiate au fost aparent sanatoase, orice valoare plasata in afara limitelor normale poate sa indice o patologie infectioasa sau dereglari metabolice si nutritionale.
