Abstract:
The present study was conducted to find out the haematological alterations in dogs affected with lymphoma. Whole blood samples were collected from 41 dogs affected with lymphoma. Complete blood counts were estimated. There was a significant decrease in the packed cell volume (PCV), total erythrocyte count (TEC), haemoglobin (Hb), total leucocyte count (TLC) and platelets (P<0.001). Decreased haemoglobin in 30 cases, TEC in 33 dogs, PCV in 32 dogs, platelets in 16 dogs and TLC in 3 dogs and elevated TLC in 9 cases were observed. Morphological classification of anemia was made based on the Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC). In conclusion, normocytic and normochromic anemia was the major morphological classification of anemia in dogs with lymphoma with decreased values of haemoglobin, PCV, and TEC. Both leucocytosis and leucopenia and thrombocytopenia were also observed.
