Abstract:
This cross sectional study aims at determining the effect of gastrointestinal nematodes on haematological and biochemical parameters in goats. 368 goats that were presented to the Campus Veterinary Hospital and Ambulatory Clinical Services, Mylardevpally, College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, from December-2017 to June-2018. Out of which 140 goats (38.04%) were found positive for gastrointestinal nematodal infestation.
Ten apparently healthy goats (Group I) which were negative for gastrointestinal nematodal infestation were selected, subjected to haematological and biochemical investigations and they served as healthy control group. Goats positive for gastrointestinal nematodal infestation were randomly divided into two groups (II and III) with each group having 10 positive cases. There was significant (p<0.05) decrease in the mean Haemoglobin (Hb), Packed cell volume (PCV), Total erythrocyte counts (TEC) and lymphocytes, Total serum proteins (TSP), Albumin levels whereas, significant (p<0.05) increase in Total leucocyte counts (TLC), eosinophils, monocytes and Globulin and Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) counts in infestated goats. It was concluded that decreased haemoglobin, total erythrocyte counts, total serum proteins, albumin were important indicators of gastrointestinal nematodiasis in goats.
